Global Ready Graduates:
It's on Us! 

This year’s theme embodies a significant part of PACIE’s mission: To help Pennsylvania create graduates with the skills that they will need to be competitive in a global marketplace. From our current K-12 students to the international students that enrich our campuses and lives, global engagement reaches every corner of the state. Segments of the 2018 conference will formulate a summit on global education in preparation for the task force that we hope will have passed by the summer months. Other segments of the conference will include workshop-style training and development opportunities in education through technology utilization, curriculum integration and design, and best practices as they relate to student engagement and awareness to the global community that inevitably touches their lives.
