Celebrate International Mother Language Day Friday
February 26, 2019
The first ever International Mother Language Day Celebration will take place 3 -5 p.m. Friday, March 1, in the Clearwater/Whitewater rooms, Idaho Commons, Moscow.
International Mother Language Day was originally observed in Feb. 2000 by the United Nations, and has spread across the world as a way to promote linguistic and cultural diversity and multilingualism.
This event is sponsored by the Martin Institute, International Programs Office and the GSSP and will consist of two main activities:
- A series of speeches/performances and creative expressions highlighting linguistic diversity of our campus community.
- Student display booths and activities to highlight diverse languages of U of I student members.
