This week marks the 12th annual International Education Week. This year’s theme is International Education: Inspiring Students Locally to Succeed Globally. International Education Week is a joint initiative of the U.S. Departments of Education and State. One of the missions of International Education Week is to celebrate the benefits of understanding the world around us so we can better communicate and collaborate with others from different cultures.
In honor of International Education Week, we will have special blog posts highlighting community involvement and collaboration. Our three posts this week come from volunteers who worked tirelessly not only in their teaching placements, but in their communities at large. Keep checking back as they share their reflections of collaborating with people from different cultures to achieve a common goal.
