Global Learning’s Transformation Contest: Student Presentations

Every person experiences moments of transformation that forever change the way we see ourselves, our community, our world. Some of the most powerful transformations involve international or intercultural experiences, experiences that cause us to discover new things that unite, divide, confuse, or clarify.

This contest asks you to think deeply about your own international or intercultural transformational experiences. What’s more, it challenges you to inspire others by sharing your experience via artistic or informational media. These media include:

 

Two students will receive a two day/one night trip to visit various federal government agencies and nongovernmental organizations during the week of May 11-15, 2016!

The trip will include informational meetings at Peace Corps headquarters, United States Department of State, and more! (Details will be added as confirmed; trip agenda subject to change).

 

Collaborating for Change: Analyzing New Approaches for Student Success

MBR
MBRFIU President Mark Rosenberg will be in Washington, DC for the official launch of Collaborating for Change: Analyzing New Approaches for Student Success on Thursday, March 31 from 2:00 – 4:00 pm at the National Press Club. 
 
Hosted by the Association of Public & Land-grant Universities (APLU) and the Coalition of Urban Serving Universities (USU), this initiative, supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, promotes and assists public urban research universities as they implement transformational approaches to advance student success. These efforts are particularly focused on helping high-need and traditionally at-risk students while keeping costs down, re-examining business models, and reaching deeper into local communities.

 

President Rosenberg, along with an FIU student and faculty member, will discuss far-reaching efforts that include a focus on gateway courses and deep roots into the Miami-Dade public schools that works to improve college readiness and student progression into and through the university.
