But Dr. David Fenner thinks that an international education is fundamental to promoting a world that actually gets along instead of blowing itself up.
Dr. Fenner, Assistant Vice Provost and Director of International Programs and Exchanges at the University of Washington, says that in his opinion, one of the biggest failings of many universities (he confines his comments to American universities, but feel free to extrapolate), is an unsettling silence about war, and particularly our role in it.
"I'm trying to make the point," says Fenner, in a telephone interview from his office in Seattle, "that we're not neutral on things that involve death and destruction and cluster bombs. We've got to be advocates for a kind of education that will actually educate a group of people that leads us forward rather than just accepts the status quo."
He says that international education is important in getting people thinking about the world outside their own backyards. "For a start, it gets people out of their comfort zone."
"It starts with putting a human face on people from Ghana, or even in Paris or Tokyo. They stop being 'them' and start being Ikira or Jean-Claude."
Fenner recalls his own experience as a student, many years ago, studying abroad for the first time in what was then Yugoslavia. He says that he's never stopped thinking about the people there as 'we' rather than 'them'.

Fenner thinks the spin-off effects of having students like that in the classroom are enormous.
