International Education Week (IEW)

International Education Week 2016 is happening November 14-18 and will feature a tremendous calendar of events across campus. We appreciate your participation in those events and look forward to IEW 2016.

International education advances cultural understanding and the protection of cultural heritage while also preparing individuals to work in a global society. Honoring those benefits and others associated with international education and global exchange, the UA is hosting a series of events during International Education Week (IEW), which is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education established in 2000.

At the UA, IEW is coordinated by the Office of Global Initiatives, which provides support to departments, faculty, researchers, staff and students who are interested in participating in international exchange. 
IEW events are hosted by colleges, departments and other units across campus.

IEW events are sponsored by the Office of Global Initiatives, UA Confucius Institute, the UA Graduate College, Center for English as a Second Language, Center for Middle Eastern Studies, International Faculty & Scholars, International Student Services, Study Abroad & Student Exchange, and UNAM-Tucson.

The Center for English as a Second Language and the Office of Global Initiatives of the University of Arizona annually invite members of the greater Southern Arizona community to nominate individuals for the Global Excellence Awards; the winners are recognized at a reception during IEW. The Global Excellence Awards are intended for those individuals who have distinguished themselves locally, regionally or nationally.
