7th Annual (2023): Add Food and Stir

Community Colleges are doing important work, educating a large percentage of post-secondary students to become part of a globalized world. As such, it is vital to internationalize the curricula of community college classes; the topic of food, as a universal need and cultural touchstone, provides an accessible gateway to the world. The conference offers an opportunity to learn from and share with colleagues across community college departments and campuses how you use the topics of food and cuisine to internationalize your curriculum.
