Fifty students win passports to facilitate their study abroad opportunities
Photos and Story by James Hill
Fifty PCC students got free passports to study anywhere they want in the world thanks to the Council on International Education Exchange (CIEE).
This great deal (passports are typically $135 each) happened at the International Education Week MiniFair and Passport Caravan held in the Sylvania Campus’ Performing Arts Center lobby on Tuesday, Nov. 17. The free passports, provided by PCC’s Education Abroad & Internationalization Steering Committee and CIEE, were part of PCC’s International Education Week celebration Nov. 16-20. The goal of the Passport Caravan was to highlight the college and CIEE’s commitment to lowering barriers and increasing access to international exchange for students. Agents from the Portland passport office were on hand to help them complete the passport process.
In addition, the adjoining MiniFair featured information tables providing information about international opportunities for PCC students, faculty and staff as well as international food, live music and cultural demonstrations by students.
