IPAC seeks to promote dialogues among diverse cultures and civilizations. Education and learning are an important aspect of promoting such dialogues. While our educational efforts extend to the general public at large, we acknowledge that the students of today and the near future are in need of developing an understanding of international relations, cultures, and customs in order to compete in a global economic environment, whether they pursue careers in business, public service, or education.

As important international topics often get buried or pushed aside in today's hectic classroom, we seek to raise awareness of these concerns, filling in the gaps or facilitating interest in further study inside or outside the classroom. As IPAC was founded as a non-partisan, neutral body that is distinguished by its ability to study and evaluate international economic, socio-political, and security issues without having a political bias, we think we are sufficiently positioned to develop programs of learning, classroom strategies, and curricula suitable for the modern classroom or other learning environments. We are interested in both face-to-face and on-line educational methods and theories.

Beyond simple awareness, we are also committed to developing methods of evaluation and knowledge development that are both measurable and sustainable over time. Indeed, it is not enough simply to raise awareness of issues, it is imperative that students are prepared to compete in the global economy and interact with peoples of diverse backgrounds.
