Roger Williams University, a small liberal arts school in Bristol, Rhode Island, is the focus of this report. The researcher first explores and defines internationalization as it applies to higher education, then analyzes the current internationalization efforts in place at RWU. Interviews were conducted with ten staff members from various departments across campus to gain a deeper understanding of RWU’s current internationalization policy. The American Council on Education’s Comprehensive Internationalization Framework is used to organize the findings into six foci for comprehensive internationalization analysis, including but not limited to institutional policy and mobility. Recommendations to expand RWU’s internationalization efforts are presented in the conclusion.
