Event Planning

Thank you to faculty, staff and students across Western who contribute to making International Week such a dynamic learning experience and fun-filled week.

Planning for the International Week 2018 schedule is still under development but events are filling in daily. Our goal this year is to focus on events that provide enriching, engaging experiences, foster dialogue about internationalization or international learning, build intercultural skills and knowledge, engage communities (both local and abroad), and help individuals become more globally aware.

Instead of doing as many events as possible, we encourage faculties and departments to work on signature events for their area or partner together on interdisciplinary events.
