UNC World View values our participants and cares for the health and safety of everyone. Because of the rapidly evolving situation regarding the COVID-19, also known as coronavirus, the decision has been made to postpone Global is Local until 2021.
Individuals who have paid directly to World View will receive a credit to be used at future programs during the 2019-2020 academic year or 2020-2021 academic year. If your registration has been coordinated by your community college office, World View is contacting them directly.
We know that as educators you are working hard to meet the needs of your students during this challenging time. World View will follow up with you in the weeks to come to share program related online resources with participants who registered. We are committed to working across the state to connect university resources and provide meaningful professional development.
If you have any questions regarding this cancellation of Global is Local please contact Kimberly Hall, administrative services coordinator, at email@example.com.
The Global is Local Initiative is a collaboration between North Carolina global industries, North Carolina community colleges and World View. It will provide World View’s community college partner institution leaders and faculty a unique opportunity to hear from local industry leaders about meeting needs in the competitive and ever-evolving economy. How will industry change? What are the skill sets and traits needed and required by current and future workers? What role will the community college play in meeting the needs of the modern workforce? Community college leaders and educators will become better equipped to meet the challenge of preparing their students and curriculum for the global marketplace.
