CSUF International Education Week 2019

At CSUF, IEW is an opportunity for all students, faculty, staff, and alumni to practice being Global Titans by cultivating curiosity, appreciation and respect for all cultures and backgrounds through participation in enriching activities and experiences, engagement with diverse individuals and groups, and exposure to different ideas and opportunities to “thrive in a global environment” all on campus.
