Activities planned for International Education Week, Nov. 11-15

Northern Kentucky University has a long list of activities scheduled on campus during International Education Week that begins on Monday, Nov. 11.

Each day is filled with academic and cultural events that highlight the importance of having a globally focused education.

Ramsey Ford and Kate Hanisian, co-founders of Design Impact, will deliver the keynote speech and interactive mini-workshop at 2 p.m. Thursday, November 14, in the Griffin Hall Digitorium.

Ford and Hanisian lived and worked internationally, leading youth development and program management initiatives in India, Jamaica and New Zealand. They will share their story and speak about the transformative effect of an international education.

During the week, students will be able to sample international cuisine, participate in a Japanese Culture Festival and obtain useful details about study abroad through information tables and discussion panels. There will also be faculty workshops about teaching in other countries and teaching international students.
