A Tai Chi demonstration is just one of the acitvities offered during the college-wide International Eductaion Week celebrations each November.

In November each GPC campus sponsors a host of events during International Education Week. IEW provides students with an opportunity to learn not only about the different languages, cultures, and customs around the world, but about the myriad languages, customs and cultures represented by Georgia Perimeter College’s own diverse student body.

International Education Week is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education is part of our efforts to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States.
