Global and Intercultural Learning in Geneva City Schools
Partnering with Geneva City Schools to achieve their goal of increasing globally competent and aware citizens
A shift in student demographics over the past decade has made Geneva City Schools one of New York’s most diverse districts. To best support all their students, faculty and staff are seeking to bolster their skills in intercultural competence. During the 2018–19 school year, staff, students and faculty from a number of Cornell units are partnering with the school district to hold professional development workshops and establish a professional learning community for a group of eight K-12 teachers to study global and intercultural learning more deeply. The Cornell team members will bring their expertise in interculturality and multiculturality, Latin American Studies and cultural and psychological studies related to the Geneva community.
