Making a World of Difference

Liz Duffy, ISS President

“Making a World of Difference,” the ISS tagline, was inspired by the work that ISS and other international school educators do day in and day out to educate students to become thoughtful and imaginative global citizens and leaders. One needs only to read a newspaper, watch TV, or follow social media to realize why the type of education provided at international schools is essential to our shared futures. I hope and expect that international school graduates will help combat the nationalism, parochialism, hate and terror that unfortunately seem to be resurgent today in many parts of the world, including the United States. I’m also optimistic that the type of multicultural, interdisciplinary and experiential education that most international schools practice will prepare students well to help tackle the complex global issues that their generation will face, such as climate change, immigration and global trade.
My ISS colleagues and I look forward to another year of serving the international school community and by extension nurturing the next generation who will “make a world of difference.” Happy New School Year for many of you and Happy Spring to those of you in the Southern hemisphere!
