Faculty Initiatives


The academic units and its faculty play an important role in internationalizing the campus.  Therefore, several faculty initiatives are developed to welcome academia to participate in the process and to share their expertise.  If you are a faculty member and would like to partake in our initiatives or have an idea you would like to share, please contact us.  


Curriculum Internationalization
TAMIU is committed to becoming the international university in the Texas A&M System and the State of Texas.  An instrumental strategy to accomplish such a goal is revamping its curricula to reflect the need for an effective international competence.  The Binational Center works hand in hand with Departments and Colleges in order to internationalize their curriculum across the board.  In turn, they will be able to enrich their international offerings and broaden traditional subject areas by an international comparative approach.


To that effect the Binational Center has created an initial 'inventory' or courses with an international perspective and/or content.  Such an 'inventory' serves as a platform for Departments and Colleges to strengthen their curriculum, thus deepening students' understanding of the social, legal, economic, political, and technological aspects of countries around the world.  Enhanced and newly developed international courses will largely improve their chances to excel in today's highly global community.
