Last week I had the wonderful opportunity to spend some time with a group of visiting students and faculty from Argentina. The group is engaged in a grant-funded program called 100,000 Strong in the Americas and consists of student entrepreneurs. Also in our discussion and this program were FVTC students from a variety of programs interested in entrepreneurship. These students and several of our staff will travel to Argentina for this program’s exchange experience in the coming months.
I always enjoy meeting and talking with visitors to FVTC from around the globe where we can share perspectives and explore topics from such an expanded view. These young guests were just terrific – so eager to learn, engage, and experience all they could as part of this international learning opportunity. And what an incredible experience for our own students!
Having met and interacted with thousands of international students and visitors over many years, I can certainly attest to the fact that we have far more in common with others in the world than differences.
