It’s not just time to say go Lobos, but go global!
The dates have been set for International Education Week (IEW), a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education to recognize the global business environment between the United States and ‘other countries.
The University of New Mexico Office of Global Education is marking the occasion by inviting departments and units to celebrate IEW November 14-18.
The goal is to celebrate UNM’s international diversity, promote global education, and recognize opportunities to gain greater knowledge and understanding of countries beyond the United States.
“Internationalization is about getting out of your cultural comfort zone. Traveling is a great way to do this, but it also happens when you open up to different cultural perspectives or associate with foreign collaborators, which is why the diverse perspectives and talents that our international students bring to our class are so valuable,” said Global Education Initiatives Executive Director Nicole Tami.
Mark your calendar for the Study Abroad Fair, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on November 15. The SUB will host representatives from host partner universities, UNM faculty-led program leaders, and external program providers. Students will have the opportunity to ask questions and learn more about study abroad options. There will also be opportunities to learn about scholarships and other funding options.
There will also be a Study Abroad 101 session on November 18. Learn more about general programs, application processes and deadlines.
