Let’s Go Global!

International Education Week (IEW), celebrates the benefits of international education and exchange.

This annual event—an initiative of the U.S. Departments of State and Education—invites educational institutions to showcase and promote international programs that prepare students for a global future.

At the U, this means a full roster of events that showcase a variety of ways our community can “Go Global.” Join us for a full week of ways to become a more globally-minded citizen while at the U.
