HIGHLIGHTS NATIONAL RESOURCE CENTER The U.S. Department of Education again awarded us the distinction of being one of just nine Title VI National Resource Centers in Global Studies. This recognition provides $1.7 million over four years to fund a range of opportunities including: expanding the offerings of less commonly taught languages such as Arabic, Lingala, and Kiswahili; establishing new study, research, and training opportunities abroad for students traditionally under-represented in such activities; developing global content in over 30 courses; launching two new service-learning programs; and providing professional development through collaboration with historically black colleges and universities, community colleges, and global studies centers at peer institutions. GLOBALIZATION OF THE AMERICAN SOUTH We continue to explore the changing face of the southern United States and its interaction with the rest of the world. Navigating the Global American South, an annual conference, drew 250 participants to discuss topics ranging from southern identity in a global context to technology and rural development. Going to Carolina del Norte, a book on Mexican immigration to North Carolina, is selling well both inside and outside the classroom and as a result this project has brought together U.S. and Mexican Rotary Clubs to install water pumps in 3 rural schools in Celaya, Mexico. The Handbook for Educators who Work with Children from Mexico, a collaborative effort with the School of Education, is a free CD that UNC has distributed to 10,000 teachers and administrators across the country. ROTARY CENTER The Rotary Center for International Studies in Peace and Conflict Resolution, jointly managed with Duke’s Center for International Development, selects and trains midcareer professionals from around the world to have significant impact on peace. One of only six such centers worldwide, our alumni are working in such places as southern Sudan with the National Democratic Institute, in Colombia and Washington, DC with the Organization of American States, and in Ethiopia with the regional office of the International Labor Organization. To learn more about the Center, please visit We are all deeply saddened by the death of World Peace Fellow Edem Effiong on August 12, 2006 in Chapel Hill following an extended illness. A native of Nigeria, Ms. Effiong completed her master’s degree in Public Health at UNC shortly before her death.

K-12 ENGAGEMENT The popular Outreach Program delivered 464 presentations on global topics to 11,189 North Carolina students in 69 schools and 16 counties. This free program also created nine new Culture Kits for its resource library that contains various materials suitable for K-12 audiences. The new Evaluation Toolkit assesses the effectiveness of classroom presentations on global topics. Developed with the School of Education’s Program in Evaluation, Assessment, and Policy Connections, this free toolkit is available online at The North Carolina Teaching Asia Network completed two East Asia professional development seminars for 58 teachers, and it concluded the first year of a three year grant to support alumni of the Network to continue as trainers.

SERVICE LEARNING COURSE The course International Education in K-12 Classrooms gives students the opportunity to use their experiences abroad and their knowledge of global issues to develop classroom presentations for our Outreach Program. The course combines guest speakers, discussions, and hands-on workshops to build students’ public speaking skills and effective teaching methods. To meet UNC’s service requirement, enrolled students visit K-12 classrooms to deliver the presentations they developed, thereby helping promote global learning among North Carolina youth. After its initial success in 2005, we expanded this course in 2006 with the help of a Ueltschi Service-Learning grant from the university. CAROLINA FOR KIBERA This international NGO founded by UNC undergraduate students continued to expand its focus on grassroots community development, youth leadership, and access to basic health care services in Kibera, Kenya, the largest slum in East Africa. For its work, CFK was honored as a Hero of Global Health by TIME Magazine and the Gates Foundation. In summer 2006, CFK welcomed three UNC volunteers to Kibera to assist with its four core projects: 1) an inter-ethnic youth soccer program; 2) the Tabitha Medical Clinic; 3) Binti Pamoja (Daughters United) a safe space and reproductive health center for girls; and 4) Taka ni Pato (Trash is Cash) a recycling program. Other highlights included launching a $2 million endowment campaign. Additionally, CFK participated in the Brookings Institution’s Roundtable on Global Poverty in Aspen, and the University of London published a book featuring CFK as one of six worldwide case studies of “success and innovation for HIV prevention with especially vulnerable young people.” For more information, please visit

NEWINITIATIVES INTERNATIONAL INTERNSHIP DATABASE This new online resource helps UNC students learn about international internship experiences other students have had. Students can search this database by using various categories such as country, organization, or topic. This database is available exclusively to UNC students who use their ONYEN and password to logon to the site. Students can also enrich this database by sharing their internship experiences with others. To access the database, please go to

OPENING ACCESS The Center for Global Initiatives is dedicated to promoting research and training opportunities among students traditionally under-represented in global work. We are therefore supporting the Stone Center for Black Culture and History in organizing an ongoing workshop and speaker series that exposes students to global opportunities and matches these opportunities to students’ personal and professional goals. We are also collaborating with the Study Abroad Office and the Disability Services Office on a federal grant proposal to evaluate and address strengths and weaknesses concerning the global services students with disabilities receive at their home universities and the feasibility of these students studying abroad. MUSLIMS IN THE SOUTH Combining art and ethnography, the book Esse Quam Videri: Self-Portraits of Muslims in the American South recreates visual imagery of Islam and explores the experiences of American and immigrant Muslims in the American South, especially in the context of the war in Iraq. Esse Quam Videri is envisioned as a collage of first-hand narratives and self-made portraits of Muslims living in Fayetteville, North Carolina, home to the U.S. Army’s Ft. Bragg. Using the artistic expressions and voices of a community, this book will offer insight into the historical and contemporary dimensions of Islam in the American South, where diverse Muslim communities defy popular stereotypes.

OTHERMAJORACTIVITIES THE JORDAN EXCHANGE, which strengthened the institutional capacity of the University of Jordan in U.S. history, politics, and culture, wrapped up with research trips to Chapel Hill by Dr. Rajai Khanji, Dean of the Faculty of Arts, Dr. Tawfiq Yousef, Head of the English Department, Dr. Ahmad Majdoubeh, Director of International Relations and Programs, and Dr. Rula Quawas, Director of the Women’s Studies Center. Meeting with a wide array of UNC colleagues, these Jordanian scholars developed syllabi for new courses, collected data, wrote scholarly articles, lectured in classrooms, and discussed future collaborations. THE WORLD BANK MANAGERS IN TRANSITION PROGRAM provides two-week “minisabbaticals” to senior level World Bank managers who are between major assignments. The program enhances managers’ leadership, technical, and client engagement skills through interaction with faculty, students, and professionals. A collaboration with Duke’s Center for International Development, the program also helps managers identify, capture, and learn from their successes to overcome barriers to further success. FACULTY WORKING GROUPS meet regularly to critique scholarly works, host visiting speakers, develop grant proposals, and embed research into the curriculum. This year we supported working groups pursuing innovative and interdisciplinary research in the areas of Supply Chains, Culture of Economies,Vietnam, Collective Violence and Conflict Resolution, Social Movements, North Carolina Economic Development, and Latinos/Latinas in the Global American South.
