On Friday, Jan. 5, as part of the delegation of the Deans and Directors of the Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs (APSIA) meeting held in D.C., Jackson School Director Reşat Kasaba met with U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-Indiana) in D.C. Senator Young expressed his support for international engagement and education in general, and the Title VI, the 1965 Higher Education Act which promotes international skills building education in the U.S.
Kasaba and APSIA Deans thanked the Senator for his co-sponsorship of bipartisan legislation to reauthorize Title VI and to improve and encourage innovation in international education.
Kasaba is currently serving as President of APSIA, a D.C.-based global organization that brings together the major schools of international affairs around the world.
“I am heartened to see growing bipartisan support in Washington D.C. for international education,” he said. APSIA Schools are determined to continue with their efforts to educate and prepare the next generation of international engaged citizens who will work to make this a better world.”
The Jackson School hosts eight Title VI National Resource Centers, the highest number in the country. Our Title VI Centers cover nearly all regions of the world and global studies, and play a pivotal role in securing and administering one of the largest U.S. Department of Education Foreign Language and Area Studies Fellowship programs in the country.
