The Council has formed successful education collaborations with UNC Charlotte, Davidson College, Central Piedmont Community College, Wingate University and Charlotte School of Law through the Speaker-In-The-Classroom initiative. These partnerships allow us to bring speakers to college campuses in the area thereby providing access to students and faculty members to learn from world-renowned authors, state and government leaders and experts on global issues.

We offer similar roundtable and lecture opportunities to Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools, Union County Public Schools and area independent schools such as Charlotte Country Day School, Charlotte Latin School and Providence Day School.
