SALISBURY, N.C. - Jan. 2, 2014 - PRLog -- Next week a new international program will seek college participants keen on internationalizing their public health competencies. It's a collaboration between an HBCU, a study abroad provider and a social enterprise firm.

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: (../12261853-global-health-education-is-integral-to-public...).

"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." says Steven Jones, President and CEO of IERCEF.
