About 120 million youth around the world lack access to education, according to UNESCO, the United Nations scientific and cultural organization. Irina Bokova, director general of UNESCO, says the George Washington University is poised to help decrease those numbers.
GW’s UNESCO Chair in International Education for Development supports a program of research, outreach, teaching, and mentoring of a new generation of educators, working on education for global citizenship and social equity and inclusion, including education in emergency contexts.
It is an exciting time to be part of the Graduate School of Education and Human Development as we debate and engage in some of our nation's most important policy issues. Here, we believe that education has been and will continue to be the single greatest contributor to the public good and the nation's future. I'm looking forward to meeting and discussing these critical topics with you.
