Celebrate Global Diversity

News Story

On November 16–20, International Education Week will take you places you’ve never been with a week’s worth of events from study abroad 101 to international students’ approach to learning.

A joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education, each year International Education Week promotes programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States.

Here’s what the International Programs and Services Office has planned on our two campuses:
