Internationalization helps to define the extent of need and the appropriate responses to global problems. Contributions to global solutions come through both professional and personal endeavors. Educational and research efforts are furthered through personal experience and understanding. Teaching in Ghana and developing a curriculum in local government management became a case in point. Understanding the environment of, and training needs for, professional local government managers was heightened through the personal experience if living the life in Ghana. Knowledge gained under these circumstances can be used to make a real difference for real people with real problems. A vastly different world can become as important as one's own. This is the essence of global solutions.
