International House

Global Issues

Each semester, the International House selects two to three issues with global significance and provides programming to draw attention to that particular emphasis.  Types of programs include films, debates, lectures, public awareness campaigns, dinners, etc.  Some of our most recent issues were Global Hunger, American Foreign Policy, Human Trafficking, and Empowering Women through Education.
