What is International Week?

International Week at Western is held annually in November as a campus-wide celebration of all things international.

Our goal is to:

  • Celebrate Western’s international community, diversity and international collaborations
  • Learn about international opportunities for students, staff, faculty, and alumni both at home and abroad
  • Engage the London and campus communities in global learning and intercultural sharing; with specific effort to integrate domestic and international students
  • Promote and highlight diversity and inclusivity across campus and take a more integrated approach to showcasing internationalization

An annual event at many postsecondary institutions, International Week creates a dynamic learning experience for students, staff, faculty and community members focused on an inclusive, globally aware campus.
