International Student and Scholar Services is seeking students, faculty, staff and community members who may be interested in collaborating with ISSS for its upcoming World on Wednesdays(WOW) program during fall 2014 as presenters of diverse and international topics.

One mission of ISSS is to facilitate and promote international awareness throughout the Vanderbilt community by sponsoring campuswide events. WOW seeks to provide an educational program that expands perceptions and prepares community members to become more diverse in perspective and more globally inclusive.

The weekly World on Wednesdays program is designed to educate through an expansive spectrum of new, interesting, classic and specialized topics that relate to global affairs. Past WOWs have featured faculty and student presentations, research findings, study abroad experiences, guest speakers, Vanderbilt organizations, current issues and special cultural occasions.

If your department, organization or any individual member would like to present at World on Wednesdays, please complete the WOW proposal form and return it at your earliest convenience with a preferred presentation day. The fall 2014 program will begin Aug. 27 and end Nov. 19. All events are held on Wednesdays from noon to 1 p.m. in the Student Life Center’s downstairs meeting rooms 1 and 2.
