Next Monday, November 17th, will be the beginning of International Education Week at the Peralta Colleges and we are kicking it off with 3 events at Berkeley City College from 11am – 2pm (pdf). We’d love to have you all join us for all three events.
The first is a Workshop called Crossing Cultures in the Auditorium from 11am – 12pm. This is an interactive workshop that will discuss and explore cultures, cultural differences, and promote cross-cultural dialogue. We hope that students from all disciplines and backgrounds can attend.
Afterwards in the Atrium, there will be a Walk Around the World Celebration from 12:15pm – 1pm. BCC students will represent about 20 different countries and share information about their countries.
Finally, from 1pm – 2pm in the Auditorium, come to a The Life of a Peace Corp Volunteer to listen to returned Peace Corp Volunteers talk about their experiences abroad. This is a great opportunity for any student who may be interested in joining the Peace Corp, would like to learn more about the Peace Corp, or would like to live and do great work abroad.
There are other events at Alameda, Laney, and Merritt that include International Student Panels, Study Abroad and more!
