Professor Boumarate has been teaching at Valencia for almost two decades. He understands the regimen to reach across cultures and has contributed immensely to the development and growth of Valencia’s Global Distinction. As a member of the INZ (Internationalizing the Curriculum) committee, he served as the program’s first mentor, which enabled him to work with college-wide VGD students to complete their capstone and successfully graduate with Valencia’s Global Distinction.
His commitment to global education is an integral part of his teaching philosophy, which centers on three key tenets: opportunity, simplicity, and community. His goal is to assist students in embracing their membership in the global learning community while developing higher critical thinking skills in such a simplified manner that integrates innovative and productive methods to highlight the centuries-old belief that ‘‘education is fun.”
