International Education Week

Dalhousie's Agricultural Campus community is made up of students, staff, and faculty from around the world--and we are so proud. We also encourage our students to include an international study opportunity into their studies at Dal-AC. International Education Week (#IEW16) is our premier opportunity to celebrate both of these foci.

Focusing on community building and sharing, the schedule of events is intended to offer opportunities for the campus to come together to share knowledge and traditions, expand perspectives, and ultimately to build a stronger global campus community.
