Reengaging the World to Make United States Stronger at Home:

A Renewed Commitment to International Education

“All Americans need to be equipped with global and cultural competencies to navigate the ever-changing landscapes of education, international business, scientific discovery and innovation, and the global economy. International education enhances cultural and linguistic diversity, and helps to develop cross-cultural communication skills, foreign language competencies, and enhanced self-awareness and understanding of diverse perspectives.”

Joint Statement of Principles in Support of International Education
US Department of Education and US Department of State
July, 2021

 

Formal UNC World View partnerships equip more than 85 schools, K-12 districts and community college partners across North Carolina and beyond with resources and expertise to globalize their curricula and campuses and prepare globally competent students.

Partners pay no membership fee. Rather, they commit to making global learning a priority for their educators and students. UNC World View provides connections to valuable global resources, tools and networks.

  • to receive customized global education professional development consultation services for schools, districts and community colleges seeking to build global capacity for faculty and students

  • for K-12 and community college partners to have affordable workshops and custom sessions tailor-made to equip educators from all grade levels and content areas to bring a global perspective to the classroom.

Partnership Commitment

UNC World View partners commit to the following:

  • Emphasize teaching and professional development about the realities of globalization in and prepare students, teachers and administrators to thrive in today’s diverse, interconnected world.
  • Send a team of  educators to UNC World View’s hybrid programs, paying the cost of attendance.
  • Send a key educator to World View’s Global Education Leaders Program, paying the cost of attendance. Limited spots available. Participants are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis with partner preference.
  • (Optional) Send a key educator on a global study visit. World View holds a percentage of spaces on its study visits for partners, on a first-come, first-served basis. (Study visits are currently on pause due to  COVID-19)
