Salve Regina celebrates International Education Week Nov. 13-17

Salve Regina will celebrate International Education Week Nov. 13-17. This year, the University community will have multiple opportunities to hear about the experiences and insights of Salve Regina students who have studied abroad.

The week will feature a new “pizza and policy” session, where students will share how their study abroad experiences impacted their capstone research on global public policy issues. Faculty leading short-term study abroad programs will hold information sessions throughout the week, and upperclassmen will have an opportunity to explore international post-graduate opportunities.

A joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education, International Education week is an annual opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide.
