Each year, the CIE selects an area of the globe as a special focus for the entire Berea College campus. The Director of International Education programs special campus-wide events related to the area of focus, including arranging for interdisciplinary special lectures and forums, planning cultural events (such as dance and music performances), hosting Fulbright scholars, and holding religious ceremonies. During recent years, the international focus has been on Japan, Africa, East Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, and Europe. By learning about "all peoples of the earth," the CIE believes that the Berea learning experience can be deepened and strengthened.

TGIF: Think Globally--It's Friday!
This Fall, the Center for International Education launches a new Friday lunch series. "TGIF: Think Globally--It's Friday!" will take place nearly every Friday starting September 7. Most will be held in the Commons from 12:00 noon - 1:00 pm, and international lunch will be provided. Students who are from other parts of the world or who have traveled abroad will be the presenters for these educational talks.
