Diversity and Inclusion Celebrations

International Education Week

International Education Week is a worldwide celebration of the benefits of international education and exchange. The Quinnipiac community benefits from the perspectives and experiences of international students from nearly 60 countries who live and study here, in addition to the many programs Quinnipiac students are involved with around the globe. International education and learning from new cultures is key to preparing global citizens year round, and International Education Week offers us an opportunity to celebrate all the ways that international education benefits the world and the Quinnipiac community.
