Welcome to the JIC

Built in 2006, the Joseph International Center was inspired by the gratitude of one of John Joseph's former students, Andrew Schindler '72. Dr. Joseph '50 is a Lewis Audenreid Professor Emeritus of History. The Joseph International Center houses classroom space, a kitchen, a Global Commons and offices for the staff of the International Studies Program  and  International Programs. There is also a small Japanese garden donated by the Honaman family and a front patio that features a sculpture dedicated to the memory of  Diane Curcio Homiak, mother of Erin and Jill Homiak '07. The Center space facilitates the F&M community coming together across borders, cultures and languages. Many clubs and groups meet here after  office hours, hosting Arabic, French, Spanish and German coffee hours, Buddhist meditation, Asian New Year celebration and a wide variety of events.
