International Education Week

International Education Week (Nov. 16-20, 2020), is a joint initiative between the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Department of Education that celebrates the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. The Center for Global Engagement, in collaboration with campus partners, plans and hosts a diverse week of programming to encourage further internationalization efforts, cultural competence and dialogue among students, faculty and staff at St. Norbert College.

Our goal is to encourage communication between different cultures, develop globally-aware St. Norbert graduates, and attract future leaders to study, learn and exchange experiences.
