About international education
International education is an important part of the academic experience for many UNC students. When they decide to study abroad in a country other than their own, they are, in fact, engaging in international education. Among the many benefits of studying abroad are gaining a more global perspective, learning other languages, and experiencing other cultures. These attributes tend to be attractive to employers, as well, as we move to a more global economy.
International Education Week information (U.S. Department of State)
International Education Week (IEW), November 18-22, 2019, 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 is part of our efforts to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences.
We encourage the participation of all individuals and institutions interested in international education and exchange activities, including schools, colleges and universities, embassies, international organizations, businesses, associations, and community organizations. Individuals and institutions tend to hold IEW events as it is convenient for them in their local communities. We want you to celebrate as much and as often as you like. To that end, we are providing promotional materials that allow you the flexibility to promote events whenever they may be planned!
