MESSAGE FROM THE UMES PRESIDENT

It

is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the United States, the great state of Maryland, and the beautiful Eastern Shore. It is an honor for the University of Maryland Eastern Shore to serve as the host of the first “International Workshop on Global Perspectives in Education: Emerging Challenges, Opportunities and Innovative Approaches.” International education is a phenomenon that is of importance to all countries, and I am convinced that our collective effort in this workshop will serve as a valuable conduit for enhancing international education. The topics selected for the workshop are timely and critical for the K-12 school system, higher education, the private sector, as well as government agencies. The format is designed to encourage active participation of all attendees. Consequently, you will have opportunities to share experiences through group discussions and exchange of ideas; and to explore innovative approaches that will lead to recommended initiatives that will foster sustainable international educational partnerships. UMES is committed to student centeredness. Thus, the Plenary Session on Tuesday, March 15, 2005 entitled “Student’s Perspectives on International Education” was created. In this session, those of us who are educators and partners, can be informed by the students we seek to educate and positively influence. Further, it pleases me to invite each participant to be our guest at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore’s first Annual International Service Recognition/Awards Luncheon. This luncheon will be held on Wednesday, March 16, 2005, on our University grounds - - only 25 miles south of Cambridge. This change of venue will provide an opportunity for you to tour the second most beautiful campus in the United States of America – Ours! While I hope you enjoy our first Global Educational Workshop, I encourage you to network among yourselves as ideas arise and, of course, find time to enjoy the outstanding facilities that the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort has to offer. UMES and its collaborating partners wish for each participant a productive, successful, and pleasant workshop. Once again, welcome to the beautiful Eastern Shore of Maryland!

Thelma B. Thompson, Ph.D. President
