Global Education Forum Monthly A Free Monthly Event

Fall ITEP GEF promo

The International Training and Education Program (ITEP) Global Education Forum has two aims. First, it focuses on identifying the most pressing issues in education globally, as reported by renowned experts from academia, public policy, government and the non-profit sector across the globe. Second, it examines whether and how undergraduate and graduate student education and training should change in order to prepare students to address these issues.

The GEF defines education broadly-including formal, informal, and experiential settings in schools and outside the classroom. It centers on traditional educational topics such as access, equity, and achievement, and also on education as it relates to such global concerns as public health, extremism, and the environment.

PUSHOUT Virtual Screening

Join the School of Education at American University for a free screening of PUSHOUT: The Criminalization of Black Girls in Schools. This powerful documentary takes a close look at the educational, judicial and societal disparities facing Black Girls. Inspired by the groundbreaking book by renowned scholar, Monique W. Morris, Ed.D., the documentary confronts the ways in which the misunderstanding of Black girlhood has led to excessive punitive discipline which in turn disrupts one of the most important factors in their lives, their education.
