A common goal.

in International Education Week, 2012
November 13th, 2012

Listening to faculty, staff and students describe BU’s opportunities to study in China, their own experiences studying or working in China, and the presence of Chinese students on campus. Listening to how high school educators create opportunities for their students to spend 4 months in China. Learning about how and why professionals train teachers to enhance their global curriculum through a better understanding of foreign cultures. Speaking to a BU graduate student who comes from China and who is here to learn our language, our culture, our perceptions of her home country, and our expertise in city planning. Knowing that my commitment to expanding the boundaries of my own knowledge, to continuously challenging and questioning my understanding of my own and others’ cultures and to finding ways of being a more informed member of the global community is not unique to me. It is shared.
