Would you recommend International Professors Project?

by Charles K. from VA (May 3, 2010)
There are more rewarding ways to volunteer your time. I volunteered to do "internet research" and was immediately appointed a "fellow." What qualifies one to be a fellow? Not sure. I was asked to create a google group and monitor said group, which I did for nearly one year. Activity on the board was low, so IPP shut it down. I guess I never really got how setting up a message board was helping anyone.

Its because this organization has come up with unique ideas where most of the organizations have been focusing far away from such opportunities where by it leads to many things to discover.like culture,togatherness, development,different methods of instructing and teaching and many others.

Since joining IPP I have learned a tremendous amount about communicating with other professionals around the world. I feel that I can make a difference in supporting professors, students, and interns with important projects in developing countries.

Since I joined this Project as a Fellow back in 2008 I've seen it providing support for all ideas coming from all corners of the World. Education is the only vehicle that will allow humakind to survive.
