International Education Week

The first week of March is International Education Week! There are several events planned on campus, including Celebrating Indigenous Nations on Mon., Mar. 2nd, from 4-6pm in the UC Hamilton Room, the International Education Week’s Opening Reception sponsored by the UW-W Center for Global Education and Native American Cultural Awareness Association where indigenous nations will be celebrated with a Ho-Chunk musical performance and an interactive workshop with Elliot Funmaker, Sr., of The Wisconsin Dells Singers. Refreshments will be served. Be sure to use the link to the web page listing the rest of the events this week!

Andersen Library can provide resources for learning more, including Indigenous cultures in an interconnected world (3rd-floor Main Collection, GN380 .I52 2000), APA handbook of intercultural communication (3rd-floor Main Collection, HM1211 .A65 2010), Language, identity, and study abroad: Sociocultural perspectives (3rd-floor Main Collection, P53.41155 .J33 2008), Undergraduate global education: Issues for faculty, staff, and students (3rd-floor Main Collection, LB2375 .U5 2014), and Changing values and beliefs in 85 countries trends from the values surveys from 1981 to 2004 (online). In addition, Andersen Library has many resources for learning more about particular countries. To get an idea, check out the blog entry on a recent Global Café.
