Don’t miss the upcoming annual celebration of SJSU International Week. When you see the flags of the world hung in the lobby of King Library, one can’t help but be proud of our diverse campus community. International Week provides an opportunity for students, faculty and staff to broaden their cultural perspective, experience thought-provoking lectures on global subjects and collaboratively examine issues of diversity. This year’s program includes a powerhouse line-up of dynamic female voices from all walks of life. We recommend International Week events for all students, particularly those whose focus of study includes social sciences, humanities, global studies, business and communication. Departments are invited to take part in “I Week” by hosting their own specific cultural events or by bringing classes to the events listed below. We look forward to celebrating International Week with you. For more information, contact us.
