International Education Week at Bradley University

Bradley University will kick off International Education Week Monday, Nov. 14, at 9 a.m. with a global Parade of Flags, the first of several events hosted on campus.

Grade school students from St. Mark’s School, along with Bradley international students from several of the 42 unique countries represented on campus, will march through the Olin Hall and Business and Engineering Convergence Center quads, starting in front of Bradley Hall. In case of inclement weather, the parade will be held in the Michel Student Center Ballroom. After the parade, the grade school students will travel with their “passports” to the Student Center Ballroom to visit country information tables and to participate in other activities.

International Education Week is a joint initiative of the U.S. Departments of State and Education, with participation from universities across the U.S. The event’s goal is to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and to attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn and exchange experiences.
