International Education Week 2012 is Underway!

International Education Week takes place November 12-16, 2012. It is sponsored nationally by the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Department of Education, but we will also be celebrating it here on our campus. A week-long schedule of activities, lectures, and documentaries has been compiled. The theme of this year’s week is “Striving for a Healthier Future Worldwide”.

Our goal for International Education Week is to celebrate different cultures on our campus, including those of our international students. Some of our current international students will be hosting activities throughout the week. We will also be “spotlighting” some of our students in the Canisius Announcements section of the portal daily. Please share these events with your students. Should you have any questions about the events or International Education Week, please feel free to contact the Office of International Student Programs by emailing or calling x2784.
