Lecture series to provide introduction to world cultures

In its continued efforts to bring a better understanding of cultures around the world, the International Student Centre is offering a series of presentations on the history, customs, languages, and cuisines of homelands of UWindsor students.

The ISC Culture Series offers insight that can help faculty and staff in offering support to international students.

“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.”

Romi Saraswat, international student advising consultant, is the series co-ordinator.

“International students, who have picked the University of Windsor over other global institutions, merit a high level of support that can be offered only when we have an enhanced understanding of their culture, which reflects in their behaviour and mannerisms,” she says.

The first presentation of the semester is set for noon Thursday, Feb. 16. Shuzhen Zhao, head of acquisitions and bibliographic services for the Leddy Library, will discuss China in the International Student Centre on the second floor of Laurier Hall.

Winter 2023 sessions will also include presentations on India on March 21, and Indigenous cultures with the date to be determined.
