College of the Albemarle (COA) is World View’s newest community college partner to participate in the North Carolina Global Distinction (NCGD) Program. They’ve committed to emphasize teaching about global issues and world regions to prepare students to work in a global economy and live in an interconnected world. Dean Roughton, COA’s Dean of Arts and Science and Secondary Education, said, “A broad knowledge of other countries and cultures is important for citizens in today’s global community. In addition, employers increasingly seek globally competent/aware employees.”

Dr. Evonne Carter, Vice President of Learning at COA, says that being a World View partner will increase opportunities for professional development: “College faculty and staff often seek peers and resources to enhance their own learning and to share with their students or the campus community. This program offers many resources to instructors as they consider deeper globalization understanding and for incorporating global concepts into their teaching.”

World View is excited to welcome COA as a partner and a participant of NCGD. Read more about the new partnership here and read more about the Global Distinction Program here.
