I’ve posted before about the Community College Initiative program, a State Department effort that bring students to U.S. community colleges for one year. I’ve enjoyed working closely with the Northern Virginia Community College program. I presented on peacebuilding to this group in January.
The students at NOVA have now gone back to their home countries. At a recent ceremony honoring them, two students – Emma Obeng-Asante from Ghana, and Moises Gomez from Colombia – produced videos about their experiences in the U.S. They are well done, and give you a good sense of what an international education experience in the U.S. can do for international students. We need to continue to support international educational exchange – even in the face of many who question its value.
