Anderson University will celebrate the cultural diversity of the campus community, April 5-12, during a university-wide Heritage Week. Events will celebrate the many cultures and countries that Anderson University professors, student and staff represent. The 2003 Heritage Week will provide a wide variety of experience including workshops, concerts, and games. The AU offices of Multicultural and International Student Services along with the AU Campus Activities Board and the International Student Association are sponsoring the 2003 Heritage Week.

“Heritage Week is an opportunity for the university to share its diversity,” said Scott Martin, AU Director of International Student Services. "What makes these activities unique is the fun and excitement attached to them that celebrate heritage.”
