Study Tour to New York City for Members of the Education and Youth Council of the Municipality of Copenhagen
Center for International Service
College of Staten Island/City University of New York
This visit brings a group of members from the Education and Youth Council of the Municipality of Copenhagen to the College of Staten Island in November 2003. The purpose of the visit is to explore New York City issues in context; to meet with counterparts; to visit exemplary programs; to establish the potential for on-going dialogue; and to view the challenges of building an informed society in the "global village".
This program has a "case study" approach to looking at the community of Staten Island and Manhattan. Participants will examine how Staten Island and Manhattan addresses the local challenges and will understand how educational authorities view education within the city of New York. Colleagues at the College of Staten Island and participants from Copenhagen will meet City authorities and view two special initiatives in Harlem and Soho.
