International Education Week brimming with cultural activities

Salve Regina, along with many other colleges and universities in the United States, will celebrate International Education Week Nov. 8-14. The theme is “Celebrating Salve’s Global Engagement!”

International Education Week is an 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 promotes programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn and exchange experiences in the United States.
