Intercultural Engagement


Teachers have the unique opportunity of working with students from diverse cultural backgrounds; however, cultural barriers can often pose a threat to effective learning in the classroom.

Our intercultural teaching destinations are strategically selected to involve locations, languages, and cultures connected to  educational programs.
