International Education Committee update



The Hawai’i CC International Education Committee has a busy academic year planned. Here are some highlights:

International Education Week 2013

We would like to remind you that we will continue planning for this year’s International Education Week (November 18-22).

Tentatively we plan to offer a series of events centered around the theme “Origins” to highlight the fact that all human beings around the world originate from the same common ancestry. Events will include:

  • Panel discussions, and other presentations
  • Opportunities to interact with international students
  • Cultural displays (dance, music, and art)

Attending these events will expose students to a variety of social systems and cultures within the United States and the rest of the world. Suggested assessment pieces could include essays, reaction papers, presentations, panel discussions, or debates.

International Education Week Learning Outcomes

November 18-22, 2013

Students will be able to:

1. Demonstrate an understanding of the elements important to members of another culture in relation to its history, values, politics, communication styles, economy, or beliefs

2. Explain insights about his/her own cultural rules and biases

3. Express an understanding of cultural differences
