Full schedule of events set for International Education Week, Nov. 12-17

From Nov. 12 to Nov. 17, Case Western Reserve University will celebrate International Education Week with a series of events.

International Education Week was founded in 2000 as a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Department of Education under the leadership of President Bill Clinton. Clinton recognized the need for an international education policy in the United States that would highlight the important contributions of international education and promote intercultural understanding. Today, International Education Week is celebrated annually in mid-November throughout more than 100 countries.

At Case Western Reserve, this week will be celebrated through a variety of programs on campus. Past events have included lectures at the School of Law, cultural heritage celebrations through poetry and art, and the annual Thanksgiving Dinner.
