Spotlight on Members-
On November 8, 2013, Mark W. Harris, CEO and President of ELS Educational Services, Inc. and Dr. Robert A. Scott, President of Adelphi University, finalized an agreement for Adelphi’s Garden City campus to host and bring together winners of the United Nations Academic Impact (UNAI) Student Essay Contest, “Many Languages, One World,” from June 25-29, 2014, to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations.
60 university students from all over the world, at least 18 years old, will be selected as winners of the global essay contest. ELS will award these students a full expense paid five-day trip to New York where they will have the distinct honor to make presentations at the United Nations headquarters on June 27 and interact in a global Youth Forum at Adelphi’s campus the remaining days.
“Adelphi University is proud to expand its partnership with ELS Educational Services,” said Dr. Scott, president of Adelphi University. “The University has a strong commitment to international education and working with the United Nations to raise awareness of pressing global issues. This global essay competition and youth forum further develop active and informed global citizens who share the same passion about community, studying different cultures, and experiencing the world.”
