Pittsburg State University’s Office of International Programs and Services and PSU’s international students will celebrate International Education Week, Nov. 14-18, with a variety of programs designed to celebrate the multiple countries and cultures represented at PSU.
Organizers said that in addition to showcasing the many countries and cultures represented by the nearly 500 international students at PSU, International Education Week events are also intended to encourage American students to consider the many study-abroad-opportunities PSU offers and to let international students know how much they are appreciated on campus and in the community.
