The Global Festival offers the opportunity to explore cultures from around the world. Every year, international students participate in showcasing their home country with features such as children's games, international exhibits, and performances. During the festival, explore the World Gift Shop, which offers a variety of international art works, jewelry, glassware, clothing and a multitude of gift items. Proceeds support the Community Volunteers for International Programs Scholarship Fund, for spouses of international students to attend MSU classes.
MSU's Cultural Engagement Council (CEC), the organizing body behind the Year of Arts and Culture, is composed of leaders of allied cultural units, outreach, and student life. The CEC strives to increase the visibility of campus cultural resources and facilitate expanded MSU cultural engagement among our students and across Michigan, nationally, and internationally. The CEC seeks to build among students and the community a common understanding of the importance of culture through new and innovative partnerships and collaborations; and to enhance teaching and research in all aspects of the study of culture.
