On September 6th, the International and Comparative Education (ICE) welcomed a new cohort of students. A total of 69 masters and doctoral students, from a myriad of countries around the globe, joined together for ICE's new student orientation. As ICE Program Director and Associate Professor Garnett Russell shared, this was the first time the program was hosting an in-person orientation in three years due to the pandemic. For many, it was the first time many returning students were meeting face to face as well. As part of the induction to the ICE program, we introduced our new professional clusters for International Educational Development students. Students are now able to select from three different core areas to focus their studies either in 1) Global Governance, Policy, and Planning 2) Human Rights, Emergencies, and Peacebuilding and 3) Multilingual and Decolonial Dimensions of Education. New students also heard from ICE affiliated clubs such as the Sustainability Task Force, Peace Education Network and the Current Issues in Comparative Education Editorial Board. We are excited to see where our students go from here and are looking forward to all of their future successes!
