New Jersey International Education Summit

The first New Jersey International Education Summit was held on October 27, 2004 at Princeton University. The goal of the summit was to provide information to develop a five-year state plan that will ultimately improve the capacity of New Jersey’s schools to provide quality international education programs. The summit was the first of many activities designed to:

  • Raise awareness of the importance of international knowledge to social and cultural integration in New Jersey and to New Jersey’s economy;
  • Mobilize political, corporate and education leadership to support a greater focus on education about other world regions, their languages and cultures; and
  • Build networks among educators and schools interested in infusing international knowledge and skills across the curriculum and strengthening existing international education programs.
