Mission Statement

Our goal is to strengthen local and cross-continental understanding and awareness about processes and prospects of education and the role of teaching and studies by fostering dialogue among educators, researchers, and professionals from all over the world.

  • We believe that we need to grow intellectually and to consider creatively the ways in which we participate in local and global leadership.
  • We believe that we can add to such interdependent learning through rich exchanges about our beliefs, values, theories and practices.
  • We hold on to a vision that educators, researchers, and scholars can make a meaningful difference in the lives of people, inspire among them a passion for learning, and support one another in becoming change agents in our world.
