To celebrate our Think and Do Global attitude, the Office of Global Engagement is excited to host a full month of events to recognize our university’s global connections. International Education Month, celebrated around the world, takes place during the month of November and features numerous globally-focused events.
A joint initiative between the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Department of Education, International Education Month promotes programs that prepare students for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn and exchange experiences. Celebrated each year in November, the awareness month pays homage to international education and the global opportunities offered across campus.
