By Lauren J. Mapp

Three days of fun activities will take place as part of the International Education Week at San Diego Mesa College on Nov. 15-17.

Three days of fun activities will take place as part of the International Education Week at San Diego Mesa College on Nov. 15-17.

 

“International Education Week is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide,” said Spanish Professor Dora Schoenbrun-Fernandez. “This is also a prime opportunity for the International Education Committee at Mesa College to showcase the college’s and the Humanities Institute’s ‘global awareness’ learning outcome.”

 

Some of the activities planned for the week include workshops on Intercultural Communications in Business, an interfaith panel session of religious and spiritual leaders and film viewings of “Volver” and “Human.”

 

Information sessions will be available for the summer 2017 study abroad programs to Spain and Paris both Tuesday and Wednesday, and there will be a panel of former Peace Corps volunteers speaking Nov. 16 at MC 211 A/B from 2:20 to 3:45 p.m.

 

On Thursday, Nov. 17 there will be faculty workshops about writing a study abroad proposal and what to expect while teaching abroad in the LOFT located in room LR 435 from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. and 7:15 to 8:15 p.m.

 

This event is sponsored by the San Diego Mesa College Humanities Institute, Associated Students, Mesa Global Awareness Committee, Phi Theta Kappa International Honors Society, Mesa Spanish Club, Mesa Chinese Club and the Mesa Italian Club.

 

“This joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education is part of our efforts to promote programs that prepare our Mesa Students for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences,” Schoenbrun-Fernandez said.
