Each year in the Fall, MBU holds an International Education Week in conjunction with the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Department of Education. The purpose of the week, according to the Department of Education, is to promote international understanding and build support for international educational exchange by encouraging the development of programs that prepare Americans to live and work in a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study in the United States.
Currently, students from more than 20 countries attend MBU. The week features several events aimed at raising awareness of other cultures on campus. Some events held in the past include the following:
International dishes will be served by food services in the dining hall.
MBU students, faculty and staff will be offering their favorite international snacks.
MBU students, faculty and staff will be showcasing their international home country or countries they have experienced. Stop by the Great Hall for food, henna, Korean calligraphy, dancing, music and more.
An International Photo Contest is held each year to highlight where students have traveled and what they’ve experienced during their time abroad.
