Hi All,

Happy Friday!  Wednesday was Teacher's Day in Korea - a great excuse to celebrate all of you (faculty or not) who play such a key role guiding students.

As always, we are at your disposal for content, ideas, smart alec commentary.. whatever you need to bring public and international service to your communities.

In case it's useful, Conde Nast listed 7 countries where you can get a passport based on your ancestry.  Then, once you're a citizen, I can more easily come sleep on your couch.

Thanks for ALL you do,

Carmen

Free Student Simulation: iCivics Convene the Council
Convene the Council is a free simulation from iCivics and the Council on Foreign Relations. Students take on the role of President of the United States and respond to world events with the support of their National Security Council. They learn to address international crises through strategic action, engage with members of the National Security Council, weigh policy options, delegate action to appropriate government agencies and departments, and work to improve core metrics of U.S. prosperity, values, security, and world health. https://www.icivics.org/node/3078606/resource
