Showcasing opportunities around the world during International Education Week

A celebration of global proportions is coming to Brock next week.

From Monday, Nov. 21 to Friday, Nov. 25, International Education Week will celebrate the University’s international community, recognize and promote the value of education abroad and at home, and bring global discussions to campus.

Brock’s International Education Week is an annual event occurring in conjunction with the Canadian Bureau for International Education’s (CBIE) International Education Week celebrations, which are held worldwide on the third week of November and celebrated in more than 100 countries around the globe.

Online, hybrid and in-person learning sessions at the University are organized by Brock International, in collaboration with several campus partners, and aim to showcase internationalization on campus and promote international opportunities for the Brock community.

Among these sessions is the Faculty and Staff Stories: Embracing self-identity through International Education talk on Monday, Nov. 21, which will connect students with President and Vice-Chancellor Lesley Rigg, Vice-Provost, Teaching and Learning Rajiv Jhangiani, and Course Instructor, Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures Nafée Faïgou as they discuss how international education has impacted their personal and professional lives.

Participants can also hear first-hand accounts of Brock students’ experiences at the Stories from International Education gathering on Wednesday, Nov. 23, which will see students who have studied abroad share how the opportunities have made a positive impact in their academics, personal lives and careers.

Christina Bosilo, Director of Brock International, said the week serves as an occasion to reflect, promote and share the value of internationalization at Brock.

“In bringing together students, faculty and staff, our goal is to explore Brock’s connection to the world, and to recognize the contributions and diversity international education has on our campus,” she said.
