Closing the Achievement Gap

Global Affairs & Workshop: Join us for this event organized by our partner Carl-Schurz-Haus/Deutsch-Amerikanisches Institut (DAI) Freiburg e.V. within the context of “Black History Month” on February 7 from 4 – 6 pm. This public workshop is also a Global Affairs for our students.

U.S. employers have identified the link between international experience and workforce development. In a 2014 Coalition for International Education study, two-thirds of senior management reported a need for international skills at the entry and management levels. Study abroad is playing a major role toward enhancing employment prospects. Unfortunately, for students of color, access to the skills and training necessary to prepare them for a global workforce is lacking. In this context, education and employment all relate to the achievement gap. Closing the achievement gap is a major concern confronting African American students. Putting black students on par with white students affords greater access to employment opportunities that will create and sustain income and wealth-building. Noaquia Callahan is the founder of the Colored Bird Institute which was created to assist students of color toward a competitive career path in the global economy.
