Promoting Intercultural Understanding in Classrooms
This branch offers intercultural and global competence building opportunities in elementary, middle and high schools, as well as in higher education learning environments. Previously, Udo has developed and directed intercultural and global-competence-building programs at the University of Montana between 2004 and 2016. In the 2018-2019 academic year, Udo Fluck developed and offered more than 200 seminars in Lewis and Clark, Rattlesnake and Chief Charlo elementary schools, Meadow Hill and C.S. Porter middle schools and in Hellgate High School. This service can transform students and educators of all grade and age levels to not only be “global-ready” but to be “future-ready”.
