Events and Programs

As one of our goals and strategies to help students transcend their academic disciplines, we coordinate curricular, co-curricular, and extracurricular experiences in accordance with the demands of a global education. Here you will find information about the events and programs we offer.

Cultures and Languages Across the Curriculum (CLAC)

The Cultures and Languages Across the Curriculum (CLAC) movement intends to make global competence a reality for students and to create alliances among educators to share practices and find ways to incorporate an international dimension in curricula, and, more generally, to achieve internationalization goals. 

Power of Language Conference

The purpose of this conference is to highlight bilingualism, multilingualism, and second language aquisition in order to showcase the many forms that cross-lingual communication can take, while also highlighting the importance of linguistic empathy in our increasingly multicultural and interconnected community.

International Education Week

International Education Week (IEW) is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. 


Wes in the World Photo Contest

Each year, we ask Wesleyan students who have had any global experience over the previous summer and/or previous semester to submit photographs to the annual Wes in the World Photo Contest. This group includes study abroad returnees, international students, exchange students, fellowship recipients, and foreign language teaching assistants.
