From November 16-20, Waterloo International will be showcasing just how diverse the University of Waterloo is during International Education Week (IEW). IEW is celebrated around the world, and has grown over the last few years to include an array events for students, faculty, and staff, all designed to champion our diversity and promote the international initiatives both on and off campus.
This year, IEW is being made possible by over 30 contributors around campus who are running events ranging from a Go Abroad Mix and Mingle for students who are planning on going on or have been on exchange, to the International Partnerships Grant for faculty looking to pursue new research partnerships internationally, as well as anime screenings at Renison University College, and a Model G20 Conference with opening ceremonies featuring the Turkish Ambassador of Canada that is open to anyone in the Waterloo region community.
By engaging in the various IEW events, Waterloo International hopes participants will leave with a greater appreciation for the interconnectedness of our local and global communities on professional, academic, and personal scales. Whether it is through discovering a new hobby at the calligraphy class or simply trying a new cultural cuisine through Food Services, IEW encourages our Waterloo community to add a little international flair to their lives.
