Offer: Global Scholars Program Research and Recruitment Advisor

On the Peace and Collaborative Development Network, I first became aware of the job announcement by the Center for Universal Education. But after reviewing it, it also alerted me to the possibility for 'guest scholars' from around the world to do research in Washington, DC to improve learning opportunities for girls. That has motivated me to bring this announcement to the attention of World Pulse participants. For more information follow, the directions provided below....
