Ivy Tech and CAMEO host International Education Week

The Globalization Committee at Ivy Tech Community College-Columbus/Franklin, working in conjunction with the Columbus Area Multi-Ethnic Organization (CAMEO), the Indian Association and the Latin American Association, will host a number of events to celebrate International Education Week, starting Nov 11.

The Ivy Tech chapters of Phi Theta Kappa, Campus Activities Board and the Student Government Association will facilitate these events.

The primary goals of the Ivy Tech Globalization Committee are: to expand cultural awareness among all stakeholders; to internationalize our curriculum; to enhance global competence for our student population; and to enable our students to be globally competitive. The committee is made up of 12 Ivy Tech faculty and staff members.

CAMEO is comprised of nine area ethnic associations that have joined together to share their cultures and traditions with each other and with the Columbus area community. The Indian Association and the Latin American Association are members of CAMEO.
