Computer science graduates face unprecedented opportunities and unforeseen challenges in today's highly global economy. These students will have to work and to think with international perspectives and cultural awareness. In this paper, we report on our experiences organizing and teaching the Pacific Rim Summer Schools in Global Distributed Software Development. We describe the motivation for our focus, our summer school curricula and programs, provide information on the costs of organizing and running the summer schools, and examine the sustainability of our program. We conclude with a discussion of the role of such experiences in computer science curricula and in the education of American and international computer science professionals.
