Global Talk Spring 2015 Series 

The Center for International Affairs is excited to announce the Spring 2015 Global Talk Series!

The Global Talk Series was created in order to provide CWRU faculty and staff with support, guidance, and information regarding international programs, research, and activities.  Our Center continually monitors international programming trends and best practices in order to assist faculty and staff with integrating international dimensions into all facets of CWRU.
We are kicking off the Spring Series on Thursday, January 8th:

This workshop is designed to provide faculty with tips on international name pronunciation (bring your class roster) and tools to work with a diverse population of students, allowing domestic and international students to have a meaningful educational experience.  

We hope you will join us for this initial session and explore future topics: 2015 Series 
The Global Talk series is open to all faculty and staff.  An RSVP is required by the Tuesday before the event date.  Lunch is provided.

Open Doors 2014 Reports Impressive Numbers for CWRU and Ohio

The Open Doors report, an annual publication by the Institute of International Education in partnership with the U.S. Department of State, was recently released and confirms that international educational is thriving at CWRU and in Ohio. 

The report finds that the United States hosted 886,052 international students in the 2013/14 academic year – a record number, and Ohio ranks as the #8 state in the U.S. for international students at colleges and universities.  In particular, CWRU with 16.1% international student enrollment, has one of the highest 2013/14 percentages among research universities in Ohio.   In addition, international students are estimated to have contributed just under $912 million to the state economy.   The full report can be found by visiting the Open Doors data portal.

Our international student population at CWRU continues to grow (see Fall 2014 numbers) reinforcing CWRU’s commitment to promote international endeavors and expand CWRU on the world stage.
