Today, as members of the Kazakhstan-U.S. University Consortium, we hosted the first Global Hour of the year, featuring Joel Ericson, founder of Steppe Global Education and director at the Institute of International Education. Our university staff highlighted the various international projects our colleagues are engaged in, including Erasmus initiatives, the University of the Third Age, Children's University, InterLinks supported by the British Council, STEAM and STEM projects funded by Chevron, Visiting Scholars, and the Ualikhanov Language Intensive Center, part of the U.S.-Kazakhstan University Partnership Program. This event successfully raised awareness among our staff about these international collaborations.
