Medaille International Education Week

International Education Week (IEW), November 18-22, 2019, is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education is part of our efforts to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences.

This year, Medaille College invites you to participate with these activities: a door decoration contest, study abroad class presentations, a global literature display and a cultural candy buffet: 

Door Decoration: The theme is “It’s a small world after all.” To enter the competition you must submit your door for the competition at Me@Medaille. Doors are asked to be completed by 3 p.m. on Wednesday, November 20. You are permitted and encouraged to involve your students, but it is not required. Decoration supplies can be found at Medaille Global (CC201H). Connect with Lisa Kragbé. Judging will take place on Thursday and announced Friday, November 22. There will be three awards given out for the following categories: Most Creative/Artistic, Most Educational, and an Overall Winner. The Overall Winner will receive a field trip to the West Side Bazaar with their class/group!!! CLICK HERE to register your door into the competition.
