From The Northeast Corridor To Northeast Asia
Maryland-Based Company Makes International Travel Possible for BSU Students
The 2018 International School Psychology Associate Conference takes place from July 25-28 in Tokyo, Japan and thirteen Bowie State University students will be in attendance thanks to the generous donation that covered their transportation costs. The Northeast Maglev, a Maryland-based company working with the Central Japan Railway Company to promote the world’s fastest ground transportation system in the northeast corridor of the United States made the generous donation that enabled the students to attend.
These master’s degree students had been invited to share their original research regarding factors affecting the way school psychologists in the United States support culturally diverse students and families.
Joined by Northeast Maglev Chairman and CEO Wayne Rogers, and the Counselor for Transportation Policy for U.S. Embassy of Japan, Tetsuya Mori, Bowie State University President Aminta H. Breaux held a press conference July 13 to announce the donation.
“We are grateful for this generous gift from the Northeast Maglev to support our students in gaining a deeper understanding of school psychology through interaction with diverse professionals in the field. By sharing their research at the International School Psychology Association Conference, the students will advance the promotion of diversity and inclusion in school psychology on a global stage, as well as represent the academic excellence of Bowie State University scholars.
