CULTIVATING A REGION OF GLOBALLY-MINDED CITIZENS AND PROMOTING GREATER GLOBAL UNDERSTANDING
Cleveland Council on World Affairs will launch the Maura O’Donnell-McCarthy Center for Global Understanding in the spring of 2019. The Center will host two adult education initiatives, Bridges to the World professional development program for educators and Global Competence Training. Both programs will serve to cultivate a region of globally-minded citizens and to promote greater global understanding.
The Maura O’Donnell-McCarthy Center for Global Understanding has been named after CCWA’s former CEO, Maura O’Donnell-McCarthy, who recently passed away. Maura dedicated her career to inspiring engagement in international affairs and world cultures. To continue Maura’s legacy, the Council has named the new Center for Global Understanding after her.
For more information about the Center and the new initiatives, please contact Elizabeth Coerdt, Program Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (216) 255-9002.
