The international affairs office at Missouri S&T, in conjunction with the university’s study abroad programs and the Missouri S&T International Students Association, will sponsor a Global Showcase from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 19, in the atrium of the Havener Center.
The showcase will feature S&T students, faculty and staff who will share cultural items, photos and other materials from their home countries. The event will also feature a tasting component with a variety of treats from different countries. American students who have participated in study abroad programs will share their materials, photos and anecdotes. Information will be presented on world hunger and food donations will be accepted to benefit those in need in the Rolla area.
The event will also recognize and celebrate the contributions of international education in our global society as part of International Education Week (IEW), held Nov. 17-21. IEW is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education. This year’s theme, “International Education: Fostering Global Responsibility and Leadership,” acknowledges the importance of teaching our youth to be responsible, respectful world citizens.
