International Education Week is a nation-wide event celebrating "the benefits of international education and exchange." We live in a global economy, and we are fortunate to be able to meet and work with people from a wide variety of backgrounds. Learning about cultures different from our own is exciting, and it's also important. Use these resources to take full advantage of everything Butte College has to offer -- not only during International Education Week, but all of the time.
