The theme for fall 2013 Culture Showcase Speaker Series is International Education. It has been planned in connection with International Education Week activities on campus, November 11-16. International Education Week is part of an effort by the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Department of Education to promote educational programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study in the United States.
We hope that this semester’s theme will inform and expose the campus community to some of the global engagement efforts at Ohio University. A good starting point for the theme is the libraries’ rich international collections including publications from or relating to South East Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Also available are the various international studies subject guides compiled by area studies librarians in Alden Library. An exhibit at the Center for International Collections (first floor of Alden Library) that week will highlight Ohio University’s long-standing engagement with three international partners: Malaysia, Botswana, and Chubu University in Japan.
