IIE is pleased to announce two "Meet Ups" to be held at the inaugural IIE Summit on Generation Study Abroad
on topics that are pivotal to Generation Study Abroad. Summit participants are also invited to join the Embassy Dialogue Committee (EDC) Workshop and Reception held in association with the Summit. Please register for those you wish to attend.
"Global Competence in Action: How Do We Create a Culture of Travel in K-12 Districts?"
Hosted by the DC Public Schools Global Education office and featuring speakers from the Asia Society and Longview Foundation, join district-level leaders and administrators for a focused brainstorming session as we examine the growing field of K-12 global education, the role of study abroad in K-12 global education initiatives, and discuss next steps for developing students’ global competence and a "culture of travel" in local school districts. A key take-away will be how to create a K-12 environment in which global experiences are the expectation rather than the exception.
"Expanding Access to High-Impact Study Abroad for HBCU Students"
Attendees will hear a report on the outcomes of the June 2015 SIT HBCU Partnership Summit and participate in a discussion about next steps. Information about a new Title VI study abroad program on New African Diasporas designed for HBCU students will also be presented.
