International Education Week 2021  | NOVEMBER 15 - 19 2021

"ENGAGED * RESILIENT * GLOBAL"

International Education Week (IEW) is a national opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education is part of efforts to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences. 

This week is a chance for Cal Lutheran to commemorate the cultures represented on campus, and learn about the differences that make the community beautiful. The Center for Global Engagement in collaboration with Cal Lutheran partners invites you to engage in global learning by attending various programs throughout the week.

Interested in volunteering? Please fill out the participation form!
