Indiana University of Pennsylvania’s Office of International Education is sponsoring several activities October 5–8, 2009, in celebration of International Education Week.
International Education Week is a joint national initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States.
Programs are being planned at IUP in collaboration with the IUP foreign language departments and Lively Arts series.
All events are free and open to the community unless otherwise noted.
Products from Mi Esperanza, a nonprofit organization that supports the women of Honduras by helping them to create small businesses, will be on display and for sale October 5, 6, and 7 in conjunction with the afternoon events.
Events conclude October 8 with the program “Teaching English Abroad” from noon to 1:30 p.m. in Room G98, the multipurpose room, of the Sutton Suites and a Lively Arts concert at 8:00 p.m. in Gorell Recital Hall by the Jones-Maruri Duo, featuring a cellist from the United Kingdom and a Spanish guitarist. Tickets for the concert are available at the Hadley Union Building ticket counter and are $16, $14, or $10.
