Students Invited to Attend Open Forum for Phase II of CWRU's Plan for Internationalization

Interested in CWRU's international focus? Join our open forum to discuss the latest draft of the Phase II Plan for Internationalization!

The Center for International Affairs invites the campus community to review and discuss the current draft of Phase II of the plan for internationalization. Phase II of the plan for internationalization,
which can be read in full here, has been developed incorporating and building upon the existing guiding principles of Phase I, the achievements of the past four years, and the changing needs of CWRU and its constituents. The Center is hosting an upcoming forum where recommendations for Phase II of the plan for internationalization will be presented and the campus community is invited to deliberate and provide input:

Monday, March 2nd 2015
Tinkham Veale University Center, Room 134 (Senior Classroom)

In January, 2012, the CWRU community adopted the first ever Plan for Internationalization (Phase I). By collaborating with and supporting faculty, staff, and students, many of the measurable recommendations set forth in the Phase I have been met or are on target to be met within the coming years. Moreover, CWRU’s vision and mission as set forth in CWRU’s new strategic plan 2013-2018 Think Beyond the Possible demonstrates a continuing commitment to promoting international endeavors and expanding CWRU on the world stage.

We look forward to the discussion and hearing your thoughts.

The program introduces students to critical inquiry through the shared principles and theories of Art, Architecture and Design. Using Paris as the classroom, students will visit well-known sites, museums and monuments as well as hidden gems as they explore this major world cultural center. While no art or drawing skills are required, participants at every level will learn how to improve their visual skills through sketching, observation studies and analyses.
