November 17 – 21

Canada joins over 85 countries around the globe to celebrate international education on November 17–21, 2008. In Canada, International Education Week (IEW) showcases the significant contribution that international education makes in preparing Canadians for the global world and supports our efforts to engage effectively on the international stage.

Promoting Global Citizenship is the theme for Canada's IEW 2008. International and intercultural knowledge, skills, abilities and attitudes are increasingly important for students to develop in order to live and work in a complex but increasingly integrated world. Camosun College continues to expand its range of opportunities for students to develop these competencies through such programs as study abroad, internationalized curricula, and service learning.
