Photos and Story by Julie Kinney
The Office of International Education (OIE) will once again send a group of PCC staff (PT&FT bargaining unit Classified Staff, PT&FT Confidential Staff, PT&FT Academic Professionals, FT Faculty, PT Faculty (with assignment rights) and PT&FT Management) to participate in a two-week Spanish language and cultural immersion program at the Instituto Cultural Oaxaca in Mexico from Saturday, June 27 – either Saturday, July 11 or Sunday, July 12 (pending flights). This year 20 staff will be selected to participate.
The Instituto Cultural Oaxaca, Spanish Language & Cultural Immersion Program complement existing Office of International Education (OIE) initiatives, such as the CIEE International Faculty Development Seminars, Summer Institute for Intercultural Communications, International Education Week, Internationalizing the Curriculum, and pursuing international grants.
In addition to the institute fees, the OIE will also provide round trip international travel from Portland International Airport (PDX) to Oaxaca, Mexico. Please note that no friends or family are allowed to accompany the PCC staff member on this opportunity. If selected for this opportunity, you will travel as part of a group to Oaxaca. No extensions or special travel requests will be granted.
This opportunity is supportive of PCC’s Educational Master Plan, (Strategic Area 5) to "Expand and refine the inclusion of international and multicultural aspects of our world across college curricula, services, and related activities to increase awareness in the PCC community of global issues and an increasingly diverse community.”
