Expanding its footprints
The Superior Group is an exalted group of excellence due to its innovative approach to ensuring student success and driving excellence in learning, innovation, and research. To expand our footprints, the educators and administrators from the Superior Group attended Educator’s Exchange program, fully funded by the U.S. state department. The execution partner for this program is Oakland University, the University of USA, and the Superior Group. Oakland University hosted a group of Educators/Administrators from Pakistan for a program that empowered them to better serve students with learning disabilities and promote inclusiveness in the classroom. The Exchange for Pakistani Secondary Educators/Administrators (EPSEA), Equity, Access, and Learning Disability in Secondary Schools in Pakistan, is made possible through a two-year, $400,000 grant from the U.S. Department of State. The teachers also traveled to Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., for a week to learn about U.S. history and government. O.U. faculty will keep in touch with them over the next academic year, and the group will return to campus in the summer of 2023.
In his interview, Mr. Muneeb Ahmad, Director- Superior Foundation & Deputy Director of CMACED and the administrator for this delegation of educators, said, “It is an excellent opportunity for The Superior Group and Pakistan to learn new pedagogies and implement them in our education system. Such types of grants and funding opportunities must be available to the Pakistani education system so that we may contribute to the success of our Superior Pakistan”. The crux of the interview that Ms. Rosemary Max, OU’s executive director of global engagement and principal investigator of the grant, gave; said, “We are immensely grateful for this grant and for the opportunity to promote equity and inclusion. Around the globe.” “This collaboration will provide Pakistani teachers with tools and strategies to serve their student’s diverse needs and share what they are learning here with fellow teachers, students, and families in Pakistan.”
