I’ve been receiving an increasing number of inquiries about the program, in particular from institutions here in the US that are interested in finding out how they might become involved going forward. By all means contact us if you’d like more information. Over the next few months, we’ll also be initiating conversations with different groups in the Middle East and North Africa interested in taking part in future programs.

This Thursday it is. I think we are all set for a launch first thing in the morning - our technology director has agreed to come in early to accommodate us, and the time seems to work for participants in both locations.

First up on our list of topics is student life in the classroom.

Inching closer to a program launch. We are working on finalizing the day and time of the videoconferences, as well as a potential launch date over the next couple of weeks. I’m hoping we’ll be able to hold the sessions on Thursday mornings NYC time - it’s tight timing for our Tunisian counterparts, but potentially doable.

We’ve brought on board almost everyone that was on the orientation call on Wednesday, plus several others. We’re also nailing down a time for the program. Waiting on final confirmation, but I think we’re close.
