Monday’s Events for International Education Week 2015

Posted on 10/16/2015 9:01:19 AM

The Office of International Education invites you to a variety of free cultural activities and programs as part of International Education Week, October 19–26, 2015. These events are free and open to IUP and Indiana community.

The IUP OIE will be collecting donations at several events throughout the week for the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) to benefit Syrian refugees. Due to the conflict in Syria, over 4 million Syrians have sought refuge in neighboring countries. UNHCR provides basic and necessary humanitarian aid for Syrian refugees and helps the most vulnerable refugees with urgently needed relief—cash for medicine and food, stoves and fuel for heating, insulation for tents, thermal blankets, and winter clothing.

Monday’s events for International Education Week include International Luncheon Hour and the Six O’Clock Series: “Mystical Arts of Tibet.”
