For the past several years, the education department has requested several of the international students attend Professor Elizabeth Donahue’s class entitled, “Human Relations/Diversity/Indian Cultures,” a class for undergraduate education majors. The purpose of the request is to share and compare information about the different educational systems in which the international students have participated before coming to St. Mary’s University. Thus, on Wednesday, April 6th, Eman Almubarak from Saudi Arabia, Yue Cheng from China, Brother Francisco Boniche from Nicaragua and Marcin Sak from Poland participated in a panel discussion from 11:10 to 12:00. The education majors appreciated learning about both the educational systems of various countries and the experiences that the international students have had while studying here on campus this past year. Both the education majors and the international students felt a valuable connection was made through this experience.
