International/Intercultural Education

At Metropolitan Community College, International/Intercultural Education is valued as a resource to globalize curriculum, equip faculty/staff/students for employment within a diverse workforce and facilitate international/intercultural experiences to enhance professional and personal objectives.

We have educators who believe that international and multicultural education are different areas for different populations. Many people, even educators, seem to think that "international" refers to "over there," while "Multicultural' refers to populations in our cities. Yet nothing could be farther from the truth. These two themes are siblings in the same family, and they should be partners in an institution's priorities.

Acclaimed by critics, beloved by readers of all ages, taught everywhere from inner-city grade schools to universities across the country, and translated all over the world, The House on Mango Street is the remarkable story of Esperanza Cordero. Told in a series of vignettes, sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes deeply joyous, it is the story of a young Latina girl growing up in Chicago, inventing for herself who and what she will become.
