The Center for International Studies and Programs will spotlight International Education Week, Nov. 13-17, with more than 20 events.

“International Education Week is not only an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide, but also a great opportunity for students to study and work with people from other countries and cultures,” said Sara Clark, interim director of the Center for International Studies and Special Programs.

Fun, academic opportunities for students, faculty and staff will include a film screening of “Crossing Borders,” a 70-minute documentary about four Moroccan and four American university students as they travel together; a lecture about Global Citizen, a social action platform for those who want to solve the world’s biggest problems; an international photo contest; a cultural experience at the International Village; and more.

“This annual initiative aims to promote international understanding and build support for international educational exchange,” Clark said. “We are honored to share our different cultures and experiences to bring that unique diversity to UT.”
