International students, who have chosen the University of Windsor over other institutions around the world, merit a high level of support that can be offered only with an understanding of their cultures, says Romi Saraswat, an advising consultant at the International Student Centre.
She is the co-ordinator of the ISC Culture Series, intended to educate faculty and staff on the history, cuisines, languages, and common practices of regions from which the campus community is drawn.
The next event will highlight India; Chitra Rangan, associate dean of graduate studies, will present at noon Tuesday, March 21, in the centre on the second floor of Laurier Hall.
“We hope these presentations provide a taste of some of the many cultures that make up the University of Windsor community,” says ISC director Mike Houston. “Spend an hour with us and experience the rich diversity of our campus.”
