The intent of International Week (I-Week) is to be a truly campus-wide event and one that reflects James Madison University's spirit: "All Together One." For this reason, but also to draw from the many great experiences, ideas, and expertise that the many individuals from this community can contribute, we are looking for your ideas for programs and/or events that we could feature during International Week.
I-Week 2013 will take place during the last week of September (from Monday, September 23, until Friday, September 27). We welcome ideas for programs and/or events that will reflect our 2013 I-Week theme: Borders and Boundaries. This year's theme breaks from the historical focus of a particular geographical location and instead places emphasis on an idea spanning across cultures. We hope the theme will be more inclusive of cultures, countries and systems that encompass our global community. We look forward to proposals that explore your discipline, expertise and/or related interest of yours and/or your organization through the filter/lenses of borders and boundaries. Also, we will consider other internationally-focused events, which we will add to the program as time and space permit.
While we do not have a budget sufficient to fund all of the proposals, we will support ideas as resources allow based on their relevancy, financial feasibility, and creativity. We will also consider how other proposed programs and events can be combined and how different departments and organizations can collaborate with one another.
