The Tulane community is invited to participate in International Education Week (IEW) on the uptown campus beginning Monday (Oct. 17) through Sunday (Oct. 23).

With programming celebrating this year’s theme of “Global Connections,” the annual event is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education that aims to highlight the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide.

Co-sponsored by the Office of International Students and Scholars, the Office of Study Abroad and other campus partners, this year’s activities include the International Pecha Kucha, the Tulane Study Abroad Fair, a lecture from scholar and novelist Francisco Goldman on the Forum Tulane theme of “Power” and International Friday at the Quad featuring music and food from La Cubana.

The annual event aims to highlight the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide.

Students, faculty and staff can also sample cuisine from Brazil, Greece, Singapore, Nicaragua and New Zealand throughout the week in Bruff Commons and the 1834 Club.
