Teaching International 2015-2016: Global Pittsburgh and Literacy

Program Overview

Penn State Greater Allegheny is strongly committed to the University's internationalization initiatives. Since 2004, the campus has adopted a country or region of the world each year as a common subject to inspire teaching and scholarship. Beginning in 2008, a subject theme was added to the regional focus. Through comparative study we hope to advance a greater understanding of globalization and its impact on the lives of people around the world and in our own region.

During the 2015-2016 academic year, the program will focus on Pittsburgh, and literacy.
