REAL-WORLD INCLUSION is embedded in all aspects of the NEIA experience. Hands-on projects with local businesses, community partners, and thought partners around the world to develop the knowledge and skills that form the basis of solid college preparation and career readiness. And more: they empower our students with the understanding that their work can have an impact far beyond themselves or their classrooms — that their lives and actions matter, both locally and globally. Understanding is key to successful innovation and a purposeful life.
As a global school, the makeup of NEIA’s student body is a global village bringing together students and staff from a variety of backgrounds and cultures. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are core elements in NEIA’s IDEAS philosophy and practice — and essential to developing the next generation of innovators.
We need to teach students how to solve problems, not simply to find answers.
