Building Understanding, Breaking Down Barriers: 40 Years of Global Engagement at JMU

September 23-28, 2019


PROPOSALS DUE APRIL 5, 2019

Committed to the principle that international experiences and perspectives are essential to any education, the Center for Global Engagement (CGE) promotes and encourages critical awareness of world issues; knowledge of and appreciation for other cultures, languages, and belief systems; global community; and engagement at the international level, so that we may educate active and responsible global citizens. A watershed moment in the history of international education at JMU was the 1979 establishment of Semester in London, which launched international programs for the university. Since then, JMU has worked to expand programming for studies abroad; increase international students, scholars, and staff; and make international opportunities available both on campus and around the world. Join us for International Week 2019 to celebrate four decades of building understanding and breaking down barriers!

 

The Center for Global Engagement is committed to supporting and further encouraging cross-cultural learning and collaboration. Given our 2019 theme of “Building Understanding, Breaking Down Barriers: 40 Years of Global Engagement at JMU,” we invite proposals for creative opportunities to reach this goal – presentations, panels, workshops, performances, readings, and more.
