International Education Week

The Center for Global Education (CGE) is proud to celebrate International Education Week from October 14th - 18th! CGE and Tulane University support all internationalization and exchange efforts on our campus. Our partners from around the world, along with Tulane students, faculty and staff are all encouraged to participate in and recognize this important week of programming in celebration of the vibrant global community that has been cultivated on our campus. International Education Week is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education and is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. Learn more about the International Education Week initiative here. CGE will be hosting a variety of events during IEW, including the Study Abroad Fair on 10/16 and several talks and workshops surrounding Tulane’s contribution to an international student and scholar community. International food stations will also be available in the LBC. This year, food from countries with the largest international student populations at Tulane will be offered each day at the 1834 Club as well as “Chef’s Table” in the Dining Room at the Commons--see below for a schedule of featured international cuisines!
