To learn more about our international presence, be sure to attend IU Kokomo’s International Day, today from 1 to 2:30 p.m., and tomorrow, October 13, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the Kelley Student Center.

“International Day provides the campus with an opportunity to celebrate those cultures and global connections which are already here,” said Suzanne Jones, coordinator of International Student Services. “Students can learn about diverse cultures as they have a chance to taste unfamiliar food, see international travel photos, and hear international music and stories.”

The event will also feature students and two faculty presenters. Raul Mosley, associate professor of communication arts, will discuss his photojournalistic experience in Northern India today at 1 p.m. On Thursday, October 13, J.R. Pico, lecturer in Spanish, will give a presentation in the afternoon about his travels in Cuba, Turkey, and South Africa.

The International Day celebration is part of an ongoing campaign to broaden IU Kokomo’s global horizons.

“Although faculty continue to globalize the curriculum and students are increasingly pursuing international study options, our goal is to provide an opportunity each semester for our students to connect with a global culture in a new way,” said Donna McLean, coordinator of International Programs and Overseas Studies.

The event is sponsored by the offices of International Programs, Overseas Studies, and International Student Services.
