Preparing for Multiculturalism and the Global Community: The Peace Corps Experience

Description:
Multiculturalism and the global community have increasingly become part of the discourse within higher education as it strives to prepare students for an interdependent world of diverse societies. In this session, Preparing for Multiculturalism and the Global Community, returned Peace Corps volunteers will share their experiences and how Peace Corps helped them become more culturally aware. For more than 50 years, the Peace Corps has trained more than 210,000 volunteers to work at the grassroots level in 140 countries. Peace Corps training methods are often used as a model for educators, who strive to increase students awareness of multiculturalism. Peace Corps volunteers return to the United States as global citizens with language, cross-cultural and technical skills that help them become leaders in todays global society. {Will appear in FYI on Mar 5, 2014
