The Center for International Affairs invites all members of the Case Western Reserve University community to celebrate International Education Week, Monday, Nov. 18, through Friday, Nov. 22.
International Education Week is a national celebration of the benefits of international education and global exchange. Every year during this week, the Center for International Affairs works with partners on campus to provide programming that highlights international activities and opportunities at CWRU. The goal is to stimulate cultural understanding and foster an inclusive worldview.
This year’s events include a kickoff with free coffee and snacks, a naturalization ceremony hosted on campus, an opportunity to learn about life in Cuba from a faculty member who calls the country home, as well as a chance to get free passport photos taken and apply for a passport in person. Students also have the opportunity to participate in a public affairs discussion about the Israeli government featuring an emeritus professor.
The following events will be held as part of the week:
