Priority 2: Domestic Exchanges and Study Abroad Opportunities

Candidates and faculty the College of Education at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University interact with and engage culturally and linguistically diverse people within our communities increasingly more in our 21st Century society. With cultural groups immigrating to the United States in record numbers, it is imperative that our candidates and faculty have the ability to communicate and work with diverse people. Additionally, our candidates and faculty must have the ability to think about their content and subject matter from a global perspective, and they must account for issues from multiple perspectives. Given this reality, one of our strategic priorities within the College of Education is to increase significantly the number of candidates who have authentic experiences in countries outside the United States. Your financial gift can directly support candidates with study abroad opportunities that are a part of a strategic and intentional co-curricular experience that develop specific skills. While we encourage and welcome financial contributions of any dollar amount, the following chart may assist you with your giving:
