The Teaching International program at Penn State Greater Allegheny has been in place since 2004. Its goal is to educate students about world trends by studying different regions and issues of global importance. This year's focus is on the Celtic Nations and water. More than 20 faculty and staff members are cooperating to explore and reflect on various aspects of the history, culture, and economic, social and political reality of this region. Course lectures, student research projects, public debates, service learning activities, theater productions, films and guest lectures will be used to spread knowledge about this area of the world. Teaching International is a partner with the Greener Allegheny initiative and the Honors Program to bring lectures, films, and other activities on globalization and sustainability to the campus.
