International Education Week is a national event promoted by the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education that celebrates the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide.
CSUMB celebrates international education week with a week of events showcasing cultures from around the world and honoring the diversity on our own campus. CSUMB hopes to shine light on the powerful role that international education plays in a university setting by empowering diverse thought, sharing cultural traditions and ideologies and creating a welcoming and inclusive space for all people.
International Education Week is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the remarkable diversity of the CSUMB campus, and to honor cultures around the world. It is critical for all of our students to be exposed to traditions and ideologies outside their own scope, and to foster a welcoming and inclusive on-campus environment."Ida Mansourian, Associate Dean for CSUMB International Programs
Hosting open community events is in keeping with CSUMB’s role as a community resource, providing forums for provocative discussions that can impact thought and action on issues important to our community.
