Celebrating Diversity


International Education Week (IEW) is fast approaching and there are a variety of IEW events planned. Over 100 countries celebrate IEW al over the globe to help raise awareness for the importance of international education and how it benefits academic institutions such as Humber.  International education plays a crucial role in further progressing Canada economically, socially, and culturally.

This year Humber will be celebrating IEW from November 14-18, 2016. Humber will draw attention to certain cultures that define Humber and its unique cultural make-up; which in 2016 will highlight the language and cultural practices of Brazil, Mauritius, Poland, and Taiwan.

The festivities

IEW will include a variety of events including the online Global Lens Exhibit, featuring photography captured by our students traveling across the globe, interactive activities promoting study abroad opportunities, cultural displays, food, language cafes and artifacts, and students sharing their stories from abroad. Student-run booths will celebrate unique cultures and present the opportunity to tell their stories. It will be a week you don’t want to miss!
