Seven curriculum programs that stress intercultural understanding and awareness for American students are described, other intercultural-related programs are listed, and an article on global education is presented. The curriculum programs are as follows: "A New Program in Humanistic Liberal Education" at the University of Washington; "Regional and Canadian Studies" at Colby College; "International Studies Curriculum Development Project" at North Shore Community College; "International Performing Arts" at Cornell University; "Rural Development in Emerging Countries" at Bethel College; "One World Program" at Donnelly College; and "International Business Program" at Utica College. The article on global education by Robert Leestma discusses why global education is important and outlines the following components of global education: unity and diversity of mankind, international human rights, global interdependence, intergenerational responsibility, and international cooperation. Eleven additional programs at universities that relate to intercultural education are identified, and resources in this field of study are presented. (SW)
