CIBER Activity Reports
UF CIBER's Report to the National CIBER Network
The Centers for International Business Education and Research (CIBERs) were created by Congress under the Omnibus Trade and Competitiveness Act of 1988 to increase and promote the nation's capacity for international understanding and competitiveness. Since that time, CIBERs nationwide have worked to promote education, research, and business outreach activities that enhance international business in university programs and contribute to sustaining and improving the competitiveness of American firms in global markets. The national CIBER network is publishing a report of its many activities over the last 20 years, including UF CIBER's contributions, which are outlined below.
- Understanding Business Opportunities in Africa
- South American Study Abroad
- Learning in Different Contexts: UF CIBER Measures of Perception Changes from Participation in a Short-Term Study Abroad
Synergies: CIBER Annual Reports
In 2008, UF-CIBER reached a milestone—its 10-year anniversary. For more than a decade, CIBER has developed and supported international business programs and activities across UF and beyond. Some of these programs are long-standing and have stood the test of time: the Multidisciplinary IB Research Workshop and the summer Business in Brazil tour, for example. Others have been broadened greatly since 1998: language and study-abroad offerings. UF-CIBER has also created completely new initiatives not even imagined in its earliest years, including Culture Across the Curriculum classes and several cross-disciplinary courses, such as the anthropology of global trade.
As UF-CIBER expands its programs and reach, it is important for all stakeholders—faculty, students, and members of the wider local community—to have access to our extensive array of activities. In all of our annual reports, Synergies, posted below, readers will easily find information about everything UF-CIBER offers.
