La Roche University celebrated International Education Month in November with a variety of fun programs and activities that promote our diverse community!
International Education Week 2020
Recognized jointly by the U.S. Department of Education and
U.S. Department of State, this week places a spotlight on the importance of
international education and exchange.
Education Week is held the week prior to Thanksgiving. This year, however,
the Quainton Center for Global Engagement recognized the event a week
early to accommodate La Roche University's unique fall schedule. See below for
a recap of the events that occurred and ways you can still get involved!
