UNG professor of education Dr. Carly Womack-Wynne wrote an article about "global citizenship" for International Educator magazine.

A University of North Georgia (UNG) professor is drawing international attention and strong feedback for her cover story in NAFSA’s International Educator magazine conference edition. The conference was held May 27-June 1 in Philadelphia.

Dr. Carly Womack-Wynne, professor of education, wrote about preparing students for their study abroad experiences in an article “Global Citizenship 2.0.” In the article, she said educators must move beyond raising awareness and translate the information into action by their students.

She and Erin Barding, associate professor of biology at UNG, developed an online class for students going abroad. The course includes social justice and diversity concepts. Womack-Wynne believes students who take this class will have greater shifts in their dispositions while studying abroad than those who don’t.

Womack-Wynne also will continue her education. Recently, she was named to the Fulbright Specialist Roster to help with internationalization, education, quality assurance and accreditation.

The Fulbright Specialist program, established by the U.S. State Department in 2001, "pairs highly qualified U.S. academics and professionals with host institutions abroad to share their expertise … and learn about other cultures while building capacity at their overseas host institutions," according to its website.

“I’m going to learn a lot that I can bring back to the university to help us,” she said.

UNG follows Section 508 Standards and WCAG 2.0 for web accessibility. If you require the content on this web page in another format, please contact the ADA Coordinator.
