Profiling the “Internationality” of State Universities and Colleges in Region 1 of the Philippines


Globalization has been considered to be an integral aspect of how universities consider the profile of their graduates. Corollary to this, internationalization is considered to provide longterm stability through linkages and networking with premier schools in the country or abroad. The intent of this study was to determine the profile of internationalization or “internationality” of state universities and colleges (SUCs) in local provinces as to be at par with the universities and colleges in Metro Manila. The profiling could be an aid to other universities and colleges to uphold the challenges of internationalization of education. This qualitative study used the “Indicators for Mapping and Profiling Internationalization” or IMPI in gathering information on the level of internationalization of the state universities. The research included in-person interviews and focus group discussions with the participants in order to have a more holistic picture of the internationalization practices in the respective universities. Results indicate that there seems to be more room for “internationality” among these state colleges and universities in the aspects of Multi-faceted promotion of International Affiliation and Internationalization of the University Curriculum. Future research can look further into the “process” of internationality of the state universities and colleges. This can in turn highly shed light on how these universities reach a high level of internationalization.
