Salve Regina celebrating International Education Week
Salve Regina will celebrate International Education Week Oct. 26-30. A joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education, International Education Week is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide.
Although International Education Week is typically recognized in November, Salve Regina’s celebration has been moved to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the United Nations. “We’re focusing on the UN this year and bringing in three guest speakers from the UN for International Education Week,” said Grace Cleary, study abroad advisor/international programs coordinator.
International Education Week is sponsored by the Office of International Programs. Events include:
