INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION WEEK 2018

By Learning Abroad

This week is International Education Week and is an opportunity to celebrate 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 aims to promote a week of programs on campuses across the nation that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn and exchange experiences. Here at the University of Utah, several colleges and offices have organized events to further the goals of International Education Week. Whether you are interested in attending International Night or a panel about advancing your international academic and professional careers, there will be something for you to engage with globally on campus. For a full schedule of events, click here.
