International Month at PSU!

Let's Celebrate International Month!

PSU President Rahmat Shoureshi announced that 2018 will be a year for "Celebrating Innovation: Cultivating Curiosity and Creating Opportunity" at Portland State. The theme for November is "International Month".

International Education Week (IEW) is also during the month of November. International Week is from November 12-16 and is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education is part of their efforts to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences.

We hope to see you at some or all of these events!
