Celebrating Global Diversity

On November 14-17, more than 100 countries will celebrate International Education Week, and Pace is bringing you a week’s worth of events from an International Food, Culture, and Music Festival; to a soapbox speech event; to films, plays, and plenty of global opportunities.

The Office of International Programs and Services is proud to bring you more than 15 events to celebrate International Education Week.

On Monday, November 14, kick off your week with the International Food, Culture, and Music Festival featuring authentic food, a live Taiji demo, cultural dress, international music, study abroad providers, international games, and more, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the Student Union on the NYC Campus. If that doesn’t fill you, stop by the Thanksgiving Chew & Chat from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in Meeting Room A.

On the PLV Campus, stop by the Kessel Student Center to hear from CISAbroad about some of the great study abroad opportunities available to Pace students.

On November 15, CISAbroad will head down to the NYC Campus and the American Institute for Foreign Study will be on the PLV Campus. There will also be a discussion about prestigious global fellowship opportunities on the NYC Campus, a lecture on the UN Millennium Development Goals in PLV, and a screening of Gun Hill Road, a film about an ex-con who returns home after three years in prison to find out his wife is having an affair and his teenage son is exploring a sexual transformation, which earned buzz at Sundance Film Festival.

On November 16, the soapbox is yours at Voices of the World on the PLV Campus. Say what’s on your mind and celebrate international education and global citizenship. To reserve your spot, email ccullen@pace.edu.

In NYC, hear from faculty who can show you the world at a travel course panel moderated by Associate Provost for Student Success Mark A. Poisel; and learn about the Ambassadorial Rotary Fellowship, Gillman Scholarship, and studying abroad with CEA.

On November 17, take a stance; tell a story; write a speech; share a dream; sing a National Anthem; honor a social change activist; and more at the NYC Campus’ Voices of the World. Email dgee@pace.edu to speak. Also in NYC, the Office of the Provost and Office of Multicultural Affairs sponsor a trip to see La Gringa, an off-Broadway play about a native New Yorker, Maria, who travels to Puerto Rico for the first time in search of her roots and to meet her extended family. See what the New York Times called “90 minutes of laughter and delights!”

On the PLV Campus, the Center for Cross-Cultural Study will discuss different cultural travel programs in Spain and Professor Larry Hundersmarck will tell you all about his Rome: The Eternal City course at an info session.
