vIEW it with Humber! Virtual International Education Week (vIEW) 2020 Celebrations


IEW, 2019 - Dance Presentation

November 5, 2020

Humber will be celebrating virtual International Education Week (vIEW) from November 23 to 27, 2020. Due to health and safety measures amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the event will be taking place virtually this year.

IEW has been celebrated globally since 2000, showcasing the impact that international education has in preparing students for the world, promoting the benefits of study abroad, and supporting international engagement efforts. It is a day to recognize the contributions of our international students and their efforts in strengthening; international and cross-cultural understanding.

Over the years, several programs have taken place at Humber’s Lakeshore and North campuses during IEW. They usually consisted of workshops, information sessions and celebrations of the various cultures and cuisines of our international students.


Additional Activities and Increased Opportunity to vIEW it!

Given the shift to an online format this year, Humber’s International Centre will be hosting many additional events and activities. We encourage our current and prospective students, faculty, staff, and partner institutions to get involved in projects and activities related to Humber’s Internationalization Strategy and share their global experiences.

The Internationalization Strategy is focused on strengthening Humber’s status as a global postsecondary institution by increasing efforts to recruit and support international students; providing opportunities for students to study and work abroad; developing strategic partnerships to further inter-cultural exchanges; and creating opportunities for faculty and staff to contribute to international development initiatives.

There are a number of exciting and informational workshops & activities taking place and a majority of them will be streamed live:

“This year’s Virtual International Education Week is an opportunity for all members of the extended Humber community - future, past, and present - to engage in meaningful discussions and reflections about the role of international experiences on their personal and professional development,” said Amanda Koski, Manager, International Student Services.
