Drexel Celebrates International Education Week

In celebration of International Education Week, Nov. 14 to 18, Drexel University’s School of Education is partnering with the Office of International Programs to provide various events in conjunction with other Drexel departments, including Student Life and the Dornsife School of Public Health. Drexel students, faculty and staff can join institutions across the country in showcasing the university’s global education work that impacts U.S. diplomacy abroad.

Drexel’s programming for International Education Week will focus on public health research, improving population health and eliminating health disparities. It will also include the impending future for Israeli-Palestinian peace-building efforts in the volatile Middle East and the politics of gender and development in Vietnam, among other scholarly research presentation topics.

“International Education Week is a great opportunity for all Drexel students, faculty and staff to learn about issues in education all over the world, as well as learn more about opportunities Drexel offers in international education,” said Kristy Kelly, PhD, assistant clinical professor in the School of Education, who will be speaking at a Lunch & Lecture event on Wednesday, Nov. 16. “Whether it’s a panel discussion or a pizza party with international students, the week offers a wide range of diverse programming. There’s something for everyone.”
