Cancelation of the International Festival 2020

After much deliberation and consultation with the University administration, the Office of International Programs regrets to inform you that we will be canceling the International Festival for Fall 2020 in the interest of the health and safety of all. 

We know that this will be most difficult for our student groups and community members who look forward to the International Festival each year. We hope that after a year's hiatus the International Festival will be back in full strength for our 45th anniversary in Fall 2021. During these unprecedented times, the Office of International Programs remains committed to celebrating our diverse and globally-enriched campus and Charlotte community which we call home.
