International Education Week Brings Global Perspective to HSU - Humboldt State Now

International Education Week Brings Global Perspective to HSU

Humboldt State’s annual International Week highlights foreign careers and the importance of scientific literacy with a week of events from Monday, Feb. 13 to Friday, Feb. 17. All events are free and open to the public.

The U.S. Department of State’s Diplomat in Residence, Dorothy Ngutter, presents one of the week’s highlights with her talk, “Training the Global Leaders of the Future with Science Diplomacy.” Diplomats in Residence are career foreign service officers who are located throughout the United States and responsible for advising students, professionals and the community about diplomatic careers. Ngutter’s talk takes place on Monday, Feb. 13, at 3 p.m. in the Library Fishbowl and again on Wednesday, Feb. 15, at 9 a.m., also in the Fishbowl.

Marga Gual Soler, Ph.D., presents the keynote address with her talk, “Training the Global Leaders of the Future with Science Diplomacy.” Born in Spain and trained in four continents, Gual Soler considers herself a “science diplomat,” bridging the gap between academia, policy, and society. Her talk takes place in the Kate Buchanan Room on Tuesday, Feb. 14, at 5:45 p.m.

The week also features several talks and social events, including a Peace Corps information session, International Film Night, and an International Recipe Exchange.

Students enrolled in Anthropology, Economics, Geography, History, International Studies, or Political Science courses can earn one unit of credit by registering for the IEW Colloquium. Community members can also earn credit by registering for the event through HSU Open University in the College of eLearning & Extended Education.
