Attend the CIEE Global Educator Summit

Every fall, we invite a group of passionate teachers and administrators to spend a weekend participating in interactive workshops and sharing best practices in global education.  

This free event is designed to provide educators with new resources for their classrooms and get them inspired to cultivate a more global culture at their schools.
