Celebrate the Benefits of International Education: Host an International Education Week Event

Join Valencia’s efforts in recognizing international education by hosting an event at this year’s International Education Week (IEW), which will be held Monday, November 13 through Friday, November 17, 2017.

International Education Week is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. It is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education and part of the country’s efforts to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders to study abroad. This event will promote global citizenship and cross-cultural awareness through a variety of co-curricular activities collegewide.

Faculty and staff members are invited to host events that promote the IEW theme, “Think Globally, Act Locally,” and to encourage student participation throughout the week’s events.

Event submissions will be accepted through Tuesday, October 31, 2017. You can access the electronic event submission form here.
