Program in International Education (PIE).
This final report describes activities and accomplishments of the program in International Education at Bard College (New York), which is intended to enhance the ability of American undergraduates to participate in an increasingly internationalist world. The program has both organizational and curricular components. Organizationally, it consists of a student exchange with Eastern and Central European universities. The curriculum component focuses on a course in international education which is organized around themes of democracy. Beginning in 1991-92, students from Eastern and Central Europe have came to Bard for one year to join Bard students in an interdisciplinary course that explores the topic "Rights and Liberties." Since the program's inception, 81 students have participated in the exchange, 55 from east to west and 26 from west to east. An additional outcome has been development of an Eastern European network of PIE graduates who exchange information and support in economic, political, and social spheres. After a project overview, individual sections of the report describe the project's purpose, background and origins, major activities, evaluation, and project results. Appendices include the evaluator's report (Sarah Atchley), conference programs, a course syllabus, a listing of PIE students (1995-96), and sample covers from the Bard Journal of the Social Sciences.
