IEW Report from Wayne State University
Last week Wayne State University (WSU) celebrated International Education Week (IEW). Festivities included a #RefugeesWelcome Speakout, a luncheon with the Peace Corps, a "learn to play cricket" clinic, and an Open House in Windsor, Canada event.
From the Wayne State University Office of International Programs:
The Office of International Programs (OIP) organized a full slate of educational and fun events to mark IEW, a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education that celebrates the benefits of international education and exchange.
Drawing attention to the rich cultures and languages that make up the Wayne State community (more than 2,400 of the university’s 27,000 students are international and come to Detroit from nearly 80 countries), students enrolled in the English Language Institute (ELI) taught common phrases to American students during an afternoon fair, and another information session was devoted to the opportunities for undergraduate research abroad.
Other events included a photography exhibit in the Undergraduate Library featuring images from the travels of students and faculty who studied and vacationed around the globe in the last year, and a screening of the documentary film, “Girl Rising,” which supports a global campaign for girls’ education and empowerment.

Featured below are more photos from the IEW #RefugeesWelcome Speak Out, which was held in the Student Center Building on-campus at Wayne State U. During this session the university community was invited to "speak openly about discrimination, stereotyping, violence and anxiety about terrorism." The conversation included WSU and Michigan State University faculty members, refugees and artists, and featured discussion about the influence of media coverage and major political parties.
