Intercultural Week Events Build Global Perspectives

UNCW's Office of International Programs is hosting the 18th annual Intercultural Week (iWeek), Feb. 7-12. Nearly 20 events throughout the week will celebrate the theme of Shifting Perspectives in the Global Village.

The annual iWeek is a growing UNC Wilmington tradition, celebrating a variety of cultures while opening a dialogue on campus about the importance of diversity in our community.

"For people who are unable to travel or study abroad, or who want to continue to learn even more about other cultures, these events provide an opportunity for cultural immersion and interaction," said Jennifer Fernandez-Villa, UNCW's international student services director. We try to bring the world to campus, creating global perspectives."

Head to the Office of International Program's website for more information and to see a full list of the week's events!
