Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on March 29.
(Franklin, VA) — Paul D. Camp Community College Director of Workforce Development Angela Lawhorne participated in a study abroad as part of an Old Dominion University Global Higher Education course. The trip encompassed stops in Dublin, Ireland, London, England, and Cambridge, United Kingdom.
The course is an elective in Lawhorne’s PhD program in Community College Leadership at ODU. She presented to faculty, staff and students at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge about Virginia’s Fast Forward programs and Workforce Credentials Grant.
“They don’t have programs like this there,” said Lawhorne. “So, they were amazed that we have assistance like this in place to help fund student tuition toward high-demand credentials.”
In addition to Anglia Ruskin University, the ODU students visited the University College Dublin, Maynooth University, Ireland Department of Education and Skills, and the Center for Global Higher Education.
“We had the opportunity to tour Trinity University and Cambridge University campuses,” said Lawhorne. “It was a very exciting experience to share ideas and learn what others are doing in higher education.”
