Highlights from the "Going Global" conversation:

 

ICGF and Pierce Elementary partner for Multicultural education and dialogue!

ICGF and Pierce Elementary School partnered for multicultural learning between international students and 5th, 6th graders. As part of the pilot program, Mott Community College and UM-Flint international students visited the class rooms to share information about their culture, customs and native homelands. This exchange allowed for a deeper understanding and appreciation of different cultures, for both the international students and the elementary school students.

It was a great hands-on opportunity to develop a greater understanding and appreciation of different cultures.
