CNNC Director Bailey speaks at UNC World View Symposium

Posted on November 14, 2012

Director Raleigh Bailey travels to Chapel Hill today to take part in the annual UNC World View Symposium for community college educators. The 2012 program topic is “Population and Migration: A World on the Move.”

World View is a public service program that works to add a global dimension to community college and K-12 instruction across North Carolina.  The program brings together experts from across the country and organizes professional development opportunities including seminars, conferences and symposiums, online courses, and study visits abroad.

Dr. Bailey will discuss local refugee and immigrant populations in a presentation entitled “North Carolina: Gateway to the World.” Two AmeriCorps members, Ghaisha Yahaya-Mohamed and Khem Khatiwada, will accompany him and speak about their work with African and South Asian communities in particular.

In addition to working with AmeriCorps, Ghaisha is a sociology student at NC A&T. This is her second degree in Sociology – she also completed one in her home country Niger.

In addition to working with the African Services Coalition as an AmeriCorps ACCESS member, Khem, a refugee from Bhutan of Nepalese descent, is very active in organizing the Bhutanese refugee community in the Greensboro area.
