Exciting New Initiative with ISS and Lehigh University

Lehigh-University-College-of-Education-Logo.jpgISS and Lehigh University’s College of Education are pleased to announce we are moving forward with a joint initiative to provide graduate courses to administrators, teachers, and counselors at ISS schools worldwide! Through this joint partnership, ISS and Lehigh’s College of Education will begin offering courses in their Educational Leadership and International Counseling programs starting in 2018.

Results of a previously issued survey indicated that a majority of ISS school personnel are interested in pursuing graduate coursework in Educational Leadership and International Counseling, whether in Certificate program or Master’s Degree formats. Cohorts of 12-20 students will be accepted for each program. Lehigh’s College of Education is working with ISS staff to create instructional videos and individualized live Zoom sessions to help interested ISS teachers and administrators navigate the application process. The College of Education will provide dedicated staff to answer questions and assist during the entire application and admissions process.

Graduates of the Lehigh College of Education courses become part of a larger K-12 international school alumni network spanning nearly the past two decades. Intended to be a multi-year, sustainable partnership, this program will provide relevant, research-to-practice graduate courses to ISS school personnel. As stated by Nick Mitchell, a current Educational Leadership student based in Qatar, “Lehigh professors balance academic and practical sides of learning…I recommend this program to anyone looking to lead learning forward in their school.”

Stay tuned for a launch of the application process on or about November 15, 2017 for consideration of a Summer or Fall 2018 start. We look forward to working with Lehigh’s College of Education and continuing to provide ISS schools with cutting-edge graduate education opportunities.
