UNC World View connects Carolina to the world by equipping K-12 and community college educators with global knowledge, best practices and resources to prepare students to engage in our interconnected and diverse world.
In 2019, we served over 1,300 educators who collectively instruct over 100,000 North Carolina students. We have official partnerships with 96 community colleges, K-12 districts and schools across the state. But our programs are more than just large-scale conferences. We work closely alongside teachers at every grade level through the UNC World View Global Fellows Program to develop new open-source curriculum resources. Engaging with publications like The OVERBook, Smithsonian Folkways’ musicians Wu Fei and Abigail Washburn, and UNC’s vast faculty and global resources empowers teachers to bring the best in global content to their classrooms.
Our programming is dynamic and responsive, especially in changing times. We launched the first Global Education Leaders Abroad Cohort early in 2020, taking community college presidents, K-12 superintendents and their designees on a study visit to Ireland as they work to foster of pipeline of globally-minded K-14 students. Since then, we’ve created remote learning modules to deliver global professional development right to educators’ desks. We’ve spearheaded social media professional development through weekly Twitter chats and created a podcast to keep the global dialogue going.
All of this we have been able to accomplish with funding from our generous supporters, but there is still much work to do. Support the K-12 and community college educators and the students of North Carolina. Join us to keep the momentum going by making a gift to UNC World View today.
