International Games Month at Miami Dade College

About International Games Month at MDC

Miami Dade College’s Learning Resources Department will once again celebrate International Games Month (formerly known as International Games Week) with various events hosted both virtually and in-person throughout the month of November at all eight MDC campuses.

International Games Month is an initiative run by volunteers from around the world to reconnect communities through their libraries around the educational, recreational, and social value of all types of games.

This LibGuide provides a list of MDC’s International Games Month events and serves as the central and virtual hub with a complete list of events and resources for students, faculty, and staff. Information on how to join virtual events is also included on this IGM LibGuide.
