International Education Week
DePauw will celebrate International Education Week Nov. 12-17 with events that feature the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. The week culminates with the much-anticipated International Bazaar. DePauw’s 264 international students, representing 41 countries, will share their culinary specialties, in addition to performing cultural songs and dances.
International education week is a joint initiative of the U.S. Dept. of State and U.S. Dept. of Education. The goal is to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States.
The theme of the International Bazaar is "Many Traditions - One World". Our focus is unity – helping us better understand that we all share the same goals and aspirations no matter where we come from. The Multicultural and International Life office hopes the DePauw community will engage, learn and question how they fit into the fabric of international education at DePauw. We encourage students, faculty and staff members to attend the many events organized to celebrate international education. There will be panel discussions, documentaries, student spotlight events, photo exhibits and much more.
The Bazaar is Sat., Nov. 17 at 5:30 p.m. in the Memorial Student Union Building ballroom. The cost is $3, and it is open to the public.
International education week is sponsored by The Multicultural and International Life; Civic, Global and Professional Opportunities; Compton Center, Sustainability office, Prindle Institute, International Student Association; Spiritual Life, DePauw China Connections; and Wamidan.
