Exploring international issues in education


School of Education programs support a global perspective

A diverse group of students, faculty and leaders in education came together at the Summer Institute on Leadership for Educational Justice in July to explore international issues in education. “This is just one example of the School’s engagement in bigger ideas of social salience, such as internationalization,” said School of Education Dean Andrew Wall, of the program presented by the School’s Center for Educational Justice. “Understanding education in a global context is central to being an exceptionally prepared educator, leader or counselor.” Dina Ocampo, undersecretary for programs and projects at the Department of Education in the Republic of the Philippines was the keynote speaker, and this fall, the School will host its second study abroad program to the Philippines. “We have also welcomed our first International Visiting Scholars, Alice Jowet from England and Xiaohong Li from China,” added Wall. “They have enriched our environment with new thinking about key education topics that span the globe.”
