For the past 13 years, San Francisco State University has celebrated International Education Week (IEW), an international event that emphasizes the importance of increasing knowledge and awareness of the world's cultures, peoples, and languages. This year's celebration looks to be equally exciting as past years¡¯ commemorations.

International Education Week 2013 will be a wonderful opportunity for the university community to learn about the myriad cultures that exist on our campus and in the world.

In celebration of IEW 2013,
  OIP (Office of International Programs)
  Student Involvement and Career Center
  IEEC (International Education & Exchange Council) and
would like to invite all SF State cultural student organizations to participate in our annual Cultural Fair and CultureFest.

You may participate in the Cultural Fair for one, two, or for all three days!
Each organization is invited to participate in SF State¡¯s annual Cultural Fair by putting together a display table full of cultural and historical information about the cultural group that you represent and information about your specific organization.

CultureFest is a great opportunity to share your culture and introduce your club to the SF State¡¯s community!
In addition to a display table for the Cultural Fair, we would like to invite all student clubs to contribute a short (10-15 minutes) performance (dancing, singing, instrument playing, poetry recitation, artwork display, or anything else you can come up with) for the CultureFest on Wednesday, November 13 between 12:00PM and 2:00PM.

Discuss your participation in SF State¡¯s annual Cultural Fair and CultureFest at your next meeting and start brainstorming!

No contribution is too big or too small.

Let¡¯s bring together as many campus groups as possible to share cultures and organization goals in a safe, non-political environment!

If your group, club, or organization would like to participate, please complete our CultureFest Performance Proposal Form. If you would like to reserve a table to display cultural information about your club, please visit the LEAD Web site.

You are also welcome to organize your own event apart from CultureFest:
1. Complete our online IEW 2013 Event Proposal Form 2013.
2. Contact Mr. Jay Ward at OIP (415-338-1121; if you have any questions.
