The International Education Center at Brookdale
Vision. The International Education Center envisions an academic community where an international, global, or intercultural dimension is integrated into all the teaching, learning, research, student affairs and service functions of Brookdale. (J. Knight, 2003).
Mission. In connection with the College’s mission, the International Education Center (IEC) seeks to provide high quality international educational programs and services that are accessible and affordable to students, faculty, and staff. In connection with the College’s vision, the IEC is a key player in advancing institutional values of diversity and student development. The Center seeks to play a transformative role in the Brookdale community by leading campus-wide internationalization efforts via curricular and co-curricular programming. Through the global perspectives provided by the IEC, members of the Brookdale community will gain invaluable preparation for future interactions in a global workplace and diverse society.
The International Center is sponsoring the Spring 2017 Term Global Read – see all the events and programs here.
This spring, college disciplines and departments are jointly reading Mountains Beyond Mountains: The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer, A Man Who Would Cure the World. In this non-fiction text, Kidder travels with Dr. Paul Farmer and chronicles his crusade to treat the sickest and poorest people in the world. Farmer, an infectious disease doctor and anthropologist, has created the global organization Partners in Health to mitigate the sickness and suffering faced by the world’s poorest people.
Global Read sponsors also include Student Life and Activities, The Global Citizenship Project, Students for Global Citizenship, the Center for WW II Studies, CHHANGE, and Dreamers +
