Global Citizenship: Are You on Board?
I-Week 2020: September 21-26, 2020

We are pleased to announce our 2020 theme - Global Citizenship: Are You on Board?

The Center for Global Engagement is committed to supporting and further encouraging cross-cultural learning and collaboration. Given our 2020 theme, we invite proposals for creative opportunities to reach this goal – presentations, panels, workshops, performances, readings, and more.

Stay tuned for more information on this year's International Week theme and events, and lookout for upcoming emails regarding event proposals.

  • The Harrisonburg community is one of the most diverse areas in this region: one of 33 Church World Service Refugee Resettlement sites (and one of the sites with the highest rate of refugee resettlement per capita) and one of the most diverse school systems in Virginia (56 languages represented and with more than half of students have a language other than English spoken at home). 
  • More JMU students participate in study abroad than most of our peers (#1 for total number of students studying abroad on short-term programs) with 1,380+ students studying in 55+ different countries each year.
  • Our international student body has been increasing steadily over the past 5 years and continues to grow. Right now at JMU we have international students representing 75 countries.
