"Two years. Your life. Our future."
So goes the motto of America's first national
teacher corps, Teach for America.
The organization has a very straightforward pur-
pose: To ask America's most astute college gradu-
ates to put their plans for medical school, graduate
school or the corporate world on hold for two years
- and teach elementary, middle and high school.
If Teach for America recruiter Danny Morris has
his way, he will get a fair number of University
students excited about the notion when he visits
campus Nov. 6.
"The Teach for America mission is to build a
diverse corps of recent graduates to serve needy
schools and to be advocates for education," Morris
Teach for America, established in 1990, was the
brainchild of a thesis paper written by founder
Wendy Kopp while she was a senior at Princeton
in 1989. Concerned with the dearth of college stu-
dents seriously considering the teaching profes-
sion, Kopp wanted to address the teacher shortages
experienced in many inner-city and rural-area challenging and extremely rewarding," she said.

In 1989, Heidi Dziak, director of the
University's Center for International
Business Education, laid out a proposal
identifying the center's resources to
secure funding from the U.S.
Department of Education.
Eight years later, CIBE has launched
a program that includes international
workshops, internship programs, lan-
guage courses and trips to countries in
southeast Asia, based on funding it has
The program educates potential man-
agers on the global market and increas-
ing competition in areas where the
United States continues to lag behind.
At a workshop earlier this month on
How to Develop an 1nt R riaiona

University students aware of the oppor-
The panel discussion was led by
Ronald Ebelts, a marketing manager
and worldwide strategic planner for
Procter & Gamble, and Jeffrey Guyton,
who earned a joint degree in business
and Japanese studies and has worked
for Ford in Japan.
"It's good to know that other people
don't take such a traditinional path in
attaining international careers," said
LSA senior Katie Ryan.
CIBE Director Brad Farnsworth said
he thought the program was very infor-
mative for the students interested in

Guyton also emphasized the impor-
tance of fluency in a foreign language.
"Language is critical, as are leader-
ship and business background," Guyton
said. "Take a history or literature class
that gives you additional depth in that
region," he advised.
Students concerns remained focused
on how their pay scale would change as
they moved to a job abroad.
"Compensation is more tied to the
local pay scale than the U.S.'s, but it is
subject to negotiations," Guyton said at
Ebelts answered concerns about
wages abroad. For the most part, the
