Globe highlighting MexicoThe ISC Culture Series will offer information on Mexico on Wednesday, Nov. 23.

Series offers insight into culture and customs

In its continued efforts to bring a better understanding of cultures around the world, the International Student Centre is hosting interactive sessions for UWindsor faculty and staff.

The ISC Culture Series aims to provide a better understanding of the history, cuisine, languages, and common practices that help in offering support to international students.

“International students who have picked the University of Windsor over other global institutions merit a high level of support,” says the series co-ordinator, Romi Saraswat, international student advising consultant. “That requires that we have an enhanced understanding of their culture, which reflects in their behaviour and mannerisms.”

The first presentation will feature consul Alejandro Noriega of the Mexican consulate in Leamington, highlighting the culture of Mexico. It will run 1 to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 23, in the International Student Centre on the second floor of Laurier Hall.

Dates have not yet been set for sessions in the Winter 2023 semester, which will include:

  • India
  • Middle East region
  • Indigenous cultures
  • Nigeria
  • China
