Teachers from Senegal, India, Brazil, Egypt, Ghana, Morroco and Indonesia presented lessons on their countries’ traditions, culture and educational systems. Students had the opportunity to interact and ask questions of the presenters.
“I liked learning their perspective on America, and it confirmed my interest in pursuing global affairs and international studies,” said Elms sophomore Abagail Collins.
This is the second year that the Kent State students have visited Our Lady of the Elms. Both institutions plan to continue this partnership.
“This aligns perfectly with our Globalization Initiative,” said Ruth Friedman, chief academic officer at Our Lady of the Elms. “Many of the scholars indicated that their experience at the Elms was as rewarding for them as it was for our girls.”
