2017 International Education Week: Call for Event Submissions and Award Nominations


Event Submissions

It’s time to highlight global initiatives in YOUR department. It could be a lecture, exhibit, film screening, open house, performance – anything that displays international efforts through work at the UA. Event submissions are now open for 2017 International Education Week (IEW), taking place from November 13 through the 17. A joint initiative of the US Department of State and the US Department of Education, IEW promotes cultural understanding and global exchange. It’s the perfect time to show international and domestic students and scholars that education knows no boundaries. All colleges, departments, and units across campus are invited to host an event. The Office of Global Initiatives coordinates IEW at the UA and can assist with promotion once your event is solidified. Submit your event here and be sure to click “International Education Week 2017” as the audience.
