International Education Week (IEW) occurs annually during one week in November, and is a nation-wide event, celebrated at many institutions around the world. The International Initiatives Office teams up with other offices around campus to host events and activities with a global theme. This year we look forward to events including:

  • 30th Anniversary Celebration of Towson's International Initiatives Office
  • Around the World: Experience the countries and cultures of TU students and travel the world without leaving campus!
  • International Cafe (with food from around the world and performances by international students and groups)
  • "Flowers of War" film screening
  • Chalk the flags: flags from around the world are drawn on campus walkways
  • Noontime Jazz from Towson's Latin Ensemble
  • The Role of Art in Uprisings featuring Malcolm Purkey, visiting scholar from South Africa
  • Language and Literacy in Iceland, Guatemala and Egypt
  • Peace Corps Information Session
  • International Book Fair
  • Healing Practices Around the World

UPDATE: The Nov. 15 "Funding Your Experience Abroad" event has been changed to an engaging program about the Power of Connecting through Identity and Travel, co-hosted by the Study Abroad Office and African Diaspora Alliance, in UU313 at 12pm, including free pizza.
