CULTURAL EXCHANGE PROGRAM

 

Cultural exchange programs expose students to people from different cultural, religious, geographic and socio-economic backgrounds and in so doing provide the opportunity for students to develop a greater understanding of diversity-both in Nigeria and worldwide. They allow students to interact with and learn from people who are different from themselves and to participate in new and unique experiences beyond their own communities. Cultural exchange assist students to develop positive relationships with others, understand a broader range of perspectives, and develop the knowledge and skills needed for participation in our multicultural society. The fundamental purpose of a cultural exchange program is for students to share with and learn from others. Within this broad scope, exchanges may be between:

  • Students from different cultural, linguistic or religious backgrounds;
  • Students who live in different geographic areas, e.g. rural, regional, urban.
  • Students from different socio-economic backgrounds or family circumstances.
  • Students from different types of schools, i.e., e.g. Government/Non-Government.
  • Students and non-students.
