THUNDER BAY -- Lakehead University will be hosting a series of virtual interactive workshops and events from Nov. 16 to 20 as part of the University’s first ever International Education Week (IEW).
Lakehead International is excited to be joining forces with organizations in over 100 countries around the globe to strengthen the understanding of international education and celebrate its importance within our local and global communities.
“International Education Week provides a unique opportunity to explore internationalization through the lens of the many people who are working to develop inter-culturally competent and socially engaged leaders,” said James Aldridge, Vice-Provost, International.
The events organized as part of IEW will recognize and celebrate international talent, explore opportunities for working and studying abroad, showcase how the University prepares students for our global environment, and allow participants to sample ways in which we are embracing cultural diversity at Lakehead. These interactive sessions will be hosted via the online platform Zoom and will be available to members of our campuses and communities in Thunder Bay and Simcoe County.
