NORTH HOUSTON, TX (March 27, 2017) – Lone Star College invites students, employees, and the community to the 14th annual International Education Conference on “¡Cuba!, Friday, April 21.
“Our goal is to provide Lone Star College students, faculty and the surrounding community with an opportunity to broaden their perspectives on the arts and sciences from an international perspective,” said Mark Marotto, International Education Committee (IEC) co-chair and chair of the music department at LSC-Montgomery.
The conference will take place at the Lone Star Community Building and feature speakers and vendors who will present an array of information on Cuban politics, education and culture. Host campuses are LSC-Kingwood and LSC-Montgomery.
The IEC Committee chose this theme, because LSC has made connections to Cuba since the travel restrictions were lifted. Since then, there have been two study abroad trips, and an invitation for the LSC-Kingwood Big Band to perform at the prestigious jazz festival in Havana.
