IIUI And UNCW Partnership

IIUI UNCW Partnership BannerThe University of North Carolina Wilmington (UNCW) and the International Islamic University Islamabad (IIUI) are partnering to design and implement a collaborative model of professional development in teaching, research, and community engagement, primarily in Political Science/International Relations and English. The teaching component of the IIUI-UNCW collaborative model expands faculty teaching expertise at both institutions through in-person and virtual workshops, mentoring, and pedagogical collaborations. Our model also supports the bidirectional exchange of IIUI and UNCW graduate students. The IIUI-UNCW research component facilitates faculty exchanges, collaborations, and mentoring to increase individual faculty and departmental research capacities, while the community engagement component fosters student, campus and regional engagement through internships, public lecture series, and community dialogues.

Childhood in a Security State: Growing up in the U.S. and Pakistan

8 April 2015, 3:00pm-5:00pm, Morton Hall 100

The UNCW campus and Wilmington communities are invited to what will surely be an illuminating panel discussion: “Childhood in a Security State: Growing up in the U.S. and Pakistan,” on April 8th from 3 pm-5 pm in Morton Hall 100.

UNCW faculty from multiple disciplines across the university will discuss this topic as part of the State Department-funded partnership between UNCW and International Islamic University, Islamabad (IIUI). This innovative three-year grant is designed to allow the two universities to implement a collaborative model of professional development in teaching, research and community service. Numerous cultural and community events, akin to this panel discussion, are planned as part of the grant in the hopes of fostering an open dialogue about the similarities and differences between childhood in the U.S. and Pakistan.

Please invite your students and your colleagues to this interactive discussion of the challenges involved in growing up and parenting during times of global insecurity. The audience is strongly encouraged to stay after the panelists speak for an interactive question-and-answer session.

More information about this grant can be found on our IIUI and UNCW Partnership page
