From November 14th to November 18th, Oakton will be participating in International Education Week at both campuses. This year's theme is Human Migration: Root Causes, Response, and Ramifications. Throughout the week we will be having speakers from not only universities in Illinois but also from the University of Dhaka in Bangladesh, and coalitions and networks that deal with the refugee crisis. We will also have presentations from our very own Oakton faculty members on this issue. Along with the presentations, there will be an opportunity to view the film "The State of Arizona" which encompasses Arizona's controversial struggle with immigration. Students will also have a chance to attend Study Abroad Fairs as well. As the refugee crisis and immigration has become a hot topic in our media today, it is important to understand the extremities and ethics of the issue from a variety of perspectives. We hope you will join us to celebrate this momentous week and learn more this a global challenge. The full schedule is available in the link above.
