Here's to New (Global) Possibilities in 2014
Seeking a sustainable solution for balancing education abroad's ethnic bias while encouraging more U.S. college students to strengthen their marketplace value brought: Livingstone College in Salisbury, North Carolina; IES Abroad and IERC Education Foundation (IERCEF) together. They want first-generation college students to succeed in a fiercely competitive marketplace rewarding international competencies, using international field-study to do it.
This collaborative is largely represented by IES Abroad and the North Carolina Study Abroad/Global Engagement (NC SAGE) Partnership made up of Historically Black Colleges and Universities from North Carolina offering a new program claimed to be a must for any aspiring public health professional:
"We seek significant impact, nothing less. Too many U.S. students, especially those of color, are missing out on participating in a bigger field-of-play. In 2014, with 21 million students in college, it's more than just graduating. It's about standing out from the crowd and having a global viewpoint in this marketplace."
