Activities in Bilingual, Multicultural, International and Global Education (11th Annual Report).
Connecticut Univ., Storrs. Thut (I.N.) World Education Center.
Four sections comprise this report: (1) a mission statement of the I.N. Thut World Education Center (TWEC); (2) a program profile; (3) a narrative of major TWEC activities, curricular developments, personnel changes, and trends; and (4) a summary of TWEC's outreach and public service activities. Located at the University of Connecticut, TWEC was established as the World Education Project in 1971 and received official university designation as a center and its current name in 1980. TWEC honors the memory of Dr. Isaac N. Thut who pioneered comparative and international educational studies at the university. TWEC works in the four major areas that comprise the field of world education: bilingual/bicultural education; multicultural education; international education; and global education. Activities include developing curricula; organizing conferences, seminars, and workshops; sponsoring studies of educational issues; and producing special publications. Although the chief source of financial support for TWEC during 1981-82 came from the sale of its publications and services, TWEC also is the recipient of small grants. The report lists current programs, current publications, and research in progress. (RM)
