UT celebrates International Education Week

The Center for International Studies and Programs is celebrating International Education Week, Nov. 12-16, which serves as a reminder that university campuses play a special part in shaping global awareness.

The community is encouraged to explore the value of education abroad, the richness that international students and faculty bring to classrooms, and the benefits of all international programs on campus.

“This week is a good opportunity for the campus community to think about being an international leader and to take a few steps into the global environment by attending an International Education Week event,” said Dr. Sammy Spann, assistant provost for international studies and programs.

“This week will be packed full of fun academic opportunities, such as Passport registration day, International Village, Crossing Borders film screening, our first ever international photo contest, and you can even roll your own sushi. And there is more, this week provides the campus community with several opportunities to meet international students and scholars, try international food, and prepare for experiential learning outside the country.”
