Oct. 17, 2006 Morningside's International Students Association
Four Morningside College students have been invited to participate in Iowa International Fellows, a leadership training program sponsored by the Iowa Council for International Understanding (ICIU) and The Stanley Foundation. The program consists of four weekend sessions in which students meet to discuss a variety of issues and gain insight into how Iowa’s government, education, business, and politics plays into the global environment.
The students participating this year include Chiao Ying Chang of Sioux City, and Yuichi Ichinose, Kayo Nakaguchi, and Kosuke Takahashi of Japan.
The first session of Iowa International Fellows, “World Hunger,” will be held Oct. 20-21, in Des Moines, Iowa. Additional sessions include “International Business and Trade” on Nov. 17-18, in Davenport, Iowa; “Iowa Politics in Action” on Jan. 21-22, in Des Moines; and “Immigration and Iowa’s Multicultural Communities” on Feb. 23-24, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
Each year, Iowa International Fellows involves more than 80 selected international and U.S. students from Iowa's colleges and universities. Program activities include seminars with community leaders, field trips to cultural and historical sites, and social activities that provide opportunities to develop lasting international friendships.
