IMPACT 2015The 2015 edition of IMPACT magazine has been published by The College of Global Studies at Arcadia University and is now available to read and can be viewed as an e-book.

This edition of the magazine examines the incredible growth and success of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) programming abroad. Dr. Jessie Guinn, Assistant Dean of STEM at The College, outlines this growth and benefit of STEM study abroad programs.

We also highlight the work that Spelman College is doing to enhance global research in the STEM disciplines. Spelman’s own Dr. ‘Dimeji Togunde, Dr. Kai McCormack, Dr. Terezinha Galvao and Karen Clay contribute a riveting article on The Spelman Model For Enhancing Global Research in the STEM Disciplines.

In addition, the magazine profiled John Crisafulli, an alum of the National University of Ireland, Galway program with Arcadia. John had some great insights to share with us about how his study abroad experience helped him in his career, as he is now working in the field as the Senior Education Abroad Advisor at the Galvin Office of Multicultural & International Education, Babson College. 

Editorial contributions from Arcadia students and staff complement this issue’s cover stories. The issue includes an interview with Dr. Rebecca Craik, Dean of The College of Health Sciences at Arcadia University, about the growing value of international education in the health sciences disciplines.

The issue also highlights exceptional posts from Student Bloggers and excerpts from stand-out student papers written to earn Co-Curricular Learning Certificates.

The College of Global Studies wishes to express gratitude to all our contributors. Their thought provoking contributions should prove a fascinating read and engineer many fruitful discussions on these dynamic topics.
