to the Center for Global Education!
When I stress global education, it is learning more than just another language—it's learning about oneself in numerous environments and how to keep up a continual drive to experience that which is outside of what we know. I know firsthand what this means, having studied abroad in France, and I saw it in my work with soldiers who needed to be prepared to be sent to foreign lands, where they will need to know more than the language.
Methodist University has a strong global education component with a significant international footprint. We are in the process of opening a Center for Global Education, which will be a resource for all things global at Methodist. We are launching new initiatives like the Global Fellows Program, as well as new faculty-led opportunities to study abroad with key majors at MU. We have great exchange partners around the globe and we hope to use technology to even further globalize the classroom experience.
In the future, it is the University's aim to increase international student enrollment and engagement on campus, as well as continue to seek out quality study abroad opportunities for our students and faculty.
I invite everyone to join us for "Embracing Adventures and Bridging Cultures: Why You Should Be Global" on September 16, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. in Yarborough Auditorium, Clark Hall. Dr. Rebecca Wendelken will speak, and several students will share their study abroad experiences. Lunch will be provided.
