Join us for events all week! Carry a flag in the parade. See a film. Share. Learn. Go global. Play soccer. Celebrate!
International Education Week (IEW) is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange both worldwide and at UC San Diego. The week is dedicated to enhancing international awareness across campus as well as to spotlighting the importance of the exchange of students and scholars across borders.
inaugurated by president Bill Clinton in 2000 as a joint initiative by the US Department of State and the Department of Education, International Education Week emphasizes the importance of increasing student knowledge and awareness of the world's cultures, peoples and languages, and affirms the critical role that international education and exchange programs play in fostering world peace.
How will you celebrate? How will you connect? Get involved to learn and to share! Consider sharing your cultural heritage and your unique experience. Attend an event to learn about opportunities to go abroad as a student, an intern, an exchange participant and as a scholar. Explore the global dynamics of the work world and consider international career paths. Connect with others with curiosity and knowledge of compelling global issues. Reach out to classmates, labmates, research collaborators, scholars, friends and neighbors to share together how the exchange of people across borders has added rigor, depth, and humanity to your studies, research, work, and social life.
