Celebrate International Education Week November 12-18

Come experience the nearly 20 events on the UNH campus in celebration of International Education Week. A joint initiative of the U.S. Departments of State and Education, International Education Week was first held in 2000, and today is celebrated in more than 100 countries throughout the world. The Memorial Union, Office of International Students, Center for International Education, Residential Life, Navitas, Confucius Institute, ESL Institute and several student organizations are collaborating to bring you this year’s festivities, which will be taking place November 12-18, with a majority of events being held at the MUB.

International Education Week is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This annual initiative aims to promote international understanding and build support for international educational exchange. The goal is to encourage the development of programs that prepare Americans to live and work in a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study in the United States.

To that end, UNH has created events showcasing Taiko Drumming, a slide exhibit of UNH student study abroad photos, talks on the latest elections in Quebec and Global Sustainable Food Systems (by IA alumna Jacqueline Lewin ’05; read more about her as an IA alumna and her Master's program in Italy), Crossing Borders—a film designed to deepen intercultural empathy and initiate student dialogues, and Speed Travelling—an international exposé on favorite places visited by UNH faculty, staff and students.
