Global Talk 2014-2015 Series

The Center for International Affairs is excited to announce the 2014-2015 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 Fall 2014 Series on Thursday, August 21st:


Thursday, August 21, 2014:  12-1:30pm
Tomlinson Hall Large Conference Room, 1st Floor 135

This workshop is designed to provide faculty with tips on Chinese 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: 2014-2015 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.

If you have ideas for future topics or if you would like to collaborate with us, please feel free to contact the Center for International Affairs.


Help Us Plan and Celebrate International Education Week 2014 

The Center for International Affairs is looking for individuals interested in joining our working group responsible for planning and producing International Education Week 2014 (November 17-21).
International Education Week is a worldwide celebration of the benefits of international education and global exchange. This joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Department of Education is an effort 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.

The working group, led by the Center for International Affairs, will develop a variety of exciting and informative events for faculty, staff, students, and community members. Our hope is to have each school represented in some way as we celebrate significant contributions of international education, stimulate cultural understanding, and highlight the diversity of cultural events taking place on our campus and in our  neighborhood.

If you are interested in participating or have question please contact Kendee Franklin.  We will begin scheduling meetings after the start of the fall semester.

Take a look at a sampling of events from last year.
