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.
