The Center for Global Education (CGE) is proud to celebrate International Education Week from October 16 - 20! CGE and Tulane University supports all internationalization and exchange efforts on our campus. Our partners from around the world, along with Tulane students, faculty and staff are all encouraged to participate in and recognize this important week of programming in celebration of the vibrant global community that has been cultivated on our campus.
 
CGE will be hosting a variety of events during IEW, including the Study Abroad Fair, an international guest speaker, international meals at Bruff Commons, and several talks and workshops surrounding Tulane’s contribution to an international student and scholar community.
 
If your office or organization already has an event or lecture scheduled or would like to create an event that falls within the goals of promoting international education and exchange during the week of October 16 - 20. We would like to highlight student work, faculty work and service in this area, as well as opportunities for the Tulane community to become involved in internationalism in any capacity. We have brainstormed a list of possible programs below but welcome your ideas!

If you would like to have your event promoted along with International Education Week or would like to create an event, please complete this form.

We are hoping that student groups/Centers on campus will sign up to highlight programming that celebrates internationalism at Tulane.
 
Please feel free to share with your student leaders and don’t hesitate to contact us for more information.
