The Office of Cross Cultural and Leadership Development of the University of Pittsburgh will begin its year-long occurrence of Holidays Around the World. This series of events will feature the customs, meanings, and significance of major holidays through all corners of the globe. Collaborations with student organizations and community groups will help to create an appreciation and awareness of global cultures. We believe the university community will be intrigued by such events and hence, we are inviting you to attend. We will soon send you a calender of the above events.
This year, our first event is the Ramadhan Iftar (breaking the fast) Dinner to which your office and students are cordially invited to attend. It will take place on Friday, September 26, 2008 in the 6th floor of the William Pitt Union at 7:00 pm.This program is sponsored by the Office of Cross Cultural & Leadership Development, Saudi Student House, Muslim Student Association, and the Consortium for Educational Resources on Islamic Studies(CERIS). This is an exciting opportunity students to enhance their cultural experience by sharing and learning about the beautiful and important holiday of Ramadhan.
We look forward to seeing you and your students at our events and hope you have a culturally enriched year.
