International Education Week – Nov 14-17, 2016

International Education Week – Nov 14-17, 2016

International Education Week (and the International Festival scheduled for March 20-23, 2017) are proven key ingredients to the success of integrating and broadening International Education efforts on the Kapi‘olani campus for our students.

International Education Week is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. International Education Week is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education.

At Kapi‘olani Community College we are celebrating our 16th year of IEW (and next March will be the 29th year of the KCC International Festival).

IEW is part of our efforts to promote programs that prepare Kapi‘olani Community College students for a global environment, and provide students a quality international experience. We additionally hope to motivate students who might become future leaders both locally and from abroad… to study, learn, and exchange experiences within a lively academic environment.

All faculty, staff, students and community members are invited to participate in the Kapi‘olani Community College International Education Week.
