International focus on Eastern Europe and human rights, links to sustainability
This year, Teaching International is highlighting Eastern Europe and human rights. Instructors can focus on any of the listed countries or human rights as it may relate to their teaching. A web page has been developed that lists the countries included in Eastern Europe and provides news on speakers, films, and other activities.
The campus library has also collected resources for Teaching International online and can assist instructors and students in exploring and researching the region.
A second initiative at PSUGA called Penn State Greener Allegheny has formed a coalition with Teaching International. We are calling the coalition Globalization and Sustainability. Penn State Greener Allegheny is focused on addressing Green and Sustainability issues both globally and locally. Resources for this area of focus have also been collected at the Greener Allegheny web site.
