Croatia, Gaza, and Vietnam will be highlighted in the seminars this year by university faculty, staff, and students. Also, on Wednesday evening, a panel of international students will discuss education in their home countries.


Dr. Jane Cahaly, AU’s Director of International Programs, comments on the significance of these celebratory activities at Anderson. “This year we have 42 international students from five continents on the AU campus.
