2022 Global Education Leaders Virtual Program
June 21, 22, 23, 2022
No fee, but registration required.
Today’s globally connected world requires that we prepare students to become globally competent citizens who are able to work collaboratively across cultures. World View’s Global Education Leaders Program, held virtually in 2022, brings together current and aspiring leaders from K-12 schools, districts and community colleges. Together we will examine global issues that impact students and their communities. Participants will be led by university faculty and community leaders as they engage in dialogue about key global topics and explore leadership strategies to support global education initiatives in classrooms, schools, and campuses.
UNC World View honors all educators around the world in celebration of their commitment to providing a global education to their students.
Thanks to the generosity of UNC World View private donors, this program is fully funded, and there is no registration fee to educators.
