I-Week, held the last full week in September, commemorates the cultural diversity at JMU. We invite the local community of Harrisonburg, also rich in many languages and cultures, and the JMU community to participate in programs and events to celebrate our rich cultural identities. JMU faculty, staff and students are invited to submit event proposals, and are encouraged to participate in the many activities.
