The Maggie L. Walker Governor’s School for Government and International Studies has joined the Council of International Schools, a global non-profit membership organization of schools, higher education institutions and individuals focused on international education. CIS is focused on the development of global citizens through the perspectives of ethics, diversity, global issues, communication, service, and leadership.
Membership in CIS provides school communities with considerable opportunities for international collaboration and contact. “Membership in the international community of schools is in line with the essence of our mission,” said MLWGS Director Jeff McGee. “By opening pathways of collaboration with other institutions that recognize the importance of preparing students for leadership and participation as global citizens, we will add value to our outstanding program by finding more ways to connect knowledge to real-world learning experiences.”
