PSMLA Global Scholars: Cultivating Interculturality

Could your year, students, and program use a “shot in the arm” (LOL/MDR/Jajaja/Lamito!)?

Could your department benefit from working with other departments in your school toward a common goal?

Would your students appreciate the opportunity to be honored for their efforts at graduation by adding slightly to their existing curriculum and activities?

And all of this at no cost?

The PSMLA Global Scholars Program, part of a national initiative, was launched in 2015. After only 5 years, 320 students in Pennsylvania have achieved the status of PSMLA Global Scholars Graduates.

In this free interactive webinar, find out more about the program and how to implement it in your school, ask questions of, share concerns with, and get tips from current PSMLA Global Scholars Advisors from various schools, and build your enrollment so students can further develop their language skills along as well as their interculturality.

Please register by February 10, 2021.

To learn more and to register for the event visit the PSMLA website.
