The UT Center for International Studies and Programs has begun to plan International Education Week, scheduled for Nov. 12-16.

International Education Week serves as a reminder that college and university campuses play a special part in shaping the awareness of everyone’s role in the global village. The week is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education.

UT faculty, staff and students are encouraged to explore the value of education abroad, the richness that is brought into classrooms and departments by international students and faculty, and the benefits derived from all international programs on campus.

“International Education Week is an opportunity to celebrate the international efforts that are taking place on UT’s campuses,” said Dr. Sammy Spann, assistant provost for international studies and programs. “We want International Education Week to be a University-wide celebration.”

Any group or individual interested in hosting an event during International Education Week Nov. 12-16 should submit ideas by completing an online submission form found here.

Deadline for event submissions is late October.
