International Education Week 2020
This year's theme is Together Around the World
What is International Education Week?
International Education Week (November 16-20, 2020) is a national week of the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Department of Education that celebrates the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide.
Global Engagement, in collaboration with SCU partners, plans and hosts a diversity of International Education Week programming here on campus and encourages students, faculty, and staff to share their international stories and experiences on social media. To learn more about International Education Week in general, please visit the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs’ website.
Music is extremely important to communities of every culture. Check out the Music Around the World page as we highlight the SCU community's favorite international music via our very own International Education Week 2020 Spotify Playlist! We also highly encourage you to submit your own songs to be added!
We all know that food brings people together. Check out the Flavors Around the World page as we highlight the SCU community's favorite international food via our very own digital cookbook! We also highly encourage you to submit your own recipes to be added!
Prayers Around the World
The JST Community is invited to participate by submitting Prayers Around the World. We have opened a discussion forum in "Holy Ground," in the Moodle page, "JST Community Life, Prayer and Liturgy," where you may submit brief prayers either in text or video or audio form, to share with the community. You may offer a prayer for your own country or for the needs of the world. Your prayer may be in your own language; if possible, please also submit an English translation or brief summary in English. Please reach out to Paul Kircher (email@example.com) if you have any questions.
Did you know that many staff, faculty, and alumni within the Santa Clara community have had international education experience? These are just some of those who have volunteered to tell their stories!
