Empowered or Deprived? The Impact of the Mexican Educational System

Tuesday, April 9
4:00 - 5:00 p.m.
Busch Student Center, 256

Angie Guzman is a founder of a non profit organization called "Queretaro Institute for the Empowerment of Children," which is a bilingual school that will be opening next year in Mexico. The mission of the organization is to create schools that cater to students of all backgrounds: "Through creative partnerships and high-quality programs, we instill in our students a desire for lifelong learning. Our programs nurture individual talents and skills by promoting critical thinking and problem-solving, and teach students the academic and social skills needed to leave their mark in an ever-changing, global society." In this presentation Angie will give an overview of her project, speak of the history of Queretaro, explain problems encountered, and provide opportunities for students to get involved.

Higher purpose. Greater good.
