From staff reports
The 13th annual International Education Week, Nov. 12-16, which is co-sponsored by both the U.S. Department of State and Department of Education, is underway.
There are many reasons to celebrate the international education week at Ohio University. From welcoming the first international student in 1895, to creating the Center for International Studies in 1964, to today with more than 1,700 international students on campus, globalization is at the core of OHIO's identity and mission.
As an independent academic unit with both graduate and undergraduate programs, the Center for International Studies (CIS) plays a key role in internationalizing the OHIO learning and living community by infusing global education into curricula on campus and abroad. As an integral part of the CIS, the Office of Education Abroad, the Office of International Students and Faculty Services, the office of the Global Partnerships, and the Global Leadership Center are contributing to OHIO's mission of global education.
As part of the celebration of International Education Week, the International Student Union will host its annual International Dinner, "Taste the Culture: One Meal, One World," on Saturday, Nov. 17 in Baker University Center Ballroom.
There will be more than 20 exquisite dishes from different countries as well as performances from the member organizations. Tickets are currently on sale on the first floor of Baker University Center and Walter International Education Center. The ticket prices are $5 for OHIO students and $7 for faculty members.
