Events planned for International Education Week

The Center for International Studies and Programs will spotlight International Education Week, Nov. 11-18, with more than 15 events.

“International Education Week is not only an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide, but also a great opportunity for students to study and work with people from other countries and cultures,” said Sara Clark, director of the Center for International Studies and Special Programs.

“Everyone is encouraged to come and participate in these fun, academic opportunities for students, faculty and staff throughout the week,” she added.

Events will include screenings at the Toledo International Film Festival, an online photo contest, a cultural experience at the International Village, a rice cook-off and trivia night.

“This annual initiative aims to promote international understanding and build support for international educational exchange,” Clark said. “We are honored to share our different cultures and experiences to bring that unique diversity to UT.”

International Education Week celebrates diversity of voices and the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education is part of their efforts to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn and exchange experiences in the United States.
