International Education Congress to Focus on Plans for Bilingual University

MIAMI
Educators and others from throughout the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean are being invited to attend the International Education Congress 2002, which will focus on plans for the creation of Florida’s first fully bilingual university.
Those attending the conference, scheduled for April in Miami, will also be discussing scholarships for students and professionals from Spanish-speaking countries.
“One of our key goals is to integrate the different educational systems of different countries pertaining to scientific, technical and humanistic issues into a system that will lend itself to education in the new millennium,” says Dr. Humphrey Humberto Pachecker, president of the National Association of Foreign Attorneys. NAFA, based in Miami, is organizing and sponsoring the international congress, known as Estudia 2002.
Pachecker says higher education authorities from throughout South America, Central America, the Caribbean and the United States are expected to participate in the congress and contribute the type of innovative ideas that will be necessary for the successful formation of the university.
“We hope that through the creation of a bilingual university and through scholarships we will be able to prepare students and professionals for work in today’s economy,” says Pachecker. “This will not only benefit them by improving their way of life and reducing the necessity for them to emigrate to other parts of the world, but it will provide long-term benefits to their countries as well.”
The Estudia Congress is open to all educators and other professionals from around the world. For more information contact NAFA at (305) 553-6100 or visit the NAFA Web site at <www.nafalaw.com>.
