AUBURN – Twelve local teachers and seven Auburn University graduate students will travel to Korea in June as part of the Auburn University Global Initiative in Education project. They will learn about the country’s culture and educational system in an effort to bridge communications gaps with Korean-born students attending school in Auburn, Opelika and Lee County.
The College of Education and AJIN USA, a Chambers County-based metal stamping company that supplies parts for Kia and Hyundai, and its parent company, JOON, LLC, have worked together to help local educators better serve this growing student population. For the second consecutive year, a gift from AJIN USA will provide support for the Global Initiative in Education project. The company has provided more than $120,000 in support of the program.
