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:

Open Doors 2014 Reports Impressive Numbers for CWRU and Ohio
