This bi-annual event celebrates cultural diversity at San Jose State University and raises awareness of international education.

“The campus has a lot going on that really shows how involved we are globally,” said Kati Bell, Faculty-Led Programs coordinator. “Faculty and students should be aware of the opportunities that are out there.”

Workshops will cover a variety of topics for those interested in studying or teaching abroad.

New this year is a panel aimed at raising awareness of Faculty-Led Programs, short courses SJSU instructors teach overseas. This event will be held at 1 p.m. March 15 in Clark 100H.
