Dr. Sarita Jackson, an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science at North Carolina A&T, will be among a select group of university professors headed to Cuba this month to study current economic and political issues affecting the Caribbean country.
Dr. Jackson will be traveling to Cuba rom June 17-27 as a part of the Council on International Educational Exchange-International Faculty Development Seminar.
The scholars will travel to the cities of Havana and Matanzas to examine a number of current social, political and economic issues within the context of globalization.
For more than 20 years, the seminars in different countries have provided university professors the opportunity to bring “contemporary, global themes to their curricula, campus, and community at large.”
Dr. Jackson says she is looking forward to learning more about Cuba’s economic reform programs that have been implemented within the last year and sharing her experience with students in her courses, including Latin American and Caribbean Political Economy, The Politics of Free Trade, and Comparative Politics.
