International/Intercultural Education

 

At Metropolitan Community College, International/Intercultural Education is valued as a resource to globalize curriculum, equip faculty/staff/students for employment within a diverse workforce and facilitate international/intercultural experiences to enhance professional and personal objectives.

We have educators who believe that international and multicultural education are different areas for different populations. Many people, even educators, seem to think that "international" refers to "over there," while "Multicultural' refers to populations in our cities. Yet nothing could be farther from the truth. These two themes are siblings in the same family, and they should be partners in an institution's priorities.

- Robert A. Scott
