Several Graphic Design students at Rockland Community College have had the opportunity to participate in one or more COIL projects over the past several semesters. Our panel will be comprised of students who have participated in COIL projects with TUT (Tshwane University of Technology) students from Pretoria, South Africa and UDEM (University of Monterey) students from Monterey, Mexico. Visual design has been the common thread through all projects with the goal of building bridges of cultural understanding between students. The projects have been varied between countries with collaborations focused on Graphic Design Advocacy issues and Fashion Marketing projects—depending on course learning objectives for each course. This panel seeks to present the experiences of the students first-hand—the good, the bad and in the case of the Fashion Marketing project—not very ugly. They will  be joined remotely by students from both TUT and UDEM along with their professors to discuss both the pros and cons of the collaborations and discuss how it has changed their perspectives.
