Celebrate International Education Week November 16-23
Come experience the over 25 events taking place on the UNH campus in celebration of International Education Week. A joint initiative of the U.S. Departments of State and Education, International Education Week was first held in 2000, and today is celebrated in more than 100 countries throughout the world. The Memorial Union, Office of International Students, Center for International Education, Residential Life, Navitas at UNH, Confucius Institute, ESL Institute and several student organizations are collaborating to bring you this year’s festivities, which will be taking place November 16-23, with a majority of events being held at the MUB.
International Education Week is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This annual initiative aims to promote international understanding and build support for international educational exchange. The goal is to encourage the development of programs that prepare Americans to live and work in a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study in the United States.
To that end, UNH has created events showcasing
- Give a Damn movie and lecture
- Photo exhibit of UNH student study abroad photos
- International Food Luncheon
- Lectures on gender & creating a sustainable peace in Northern Ireland; interning, volunteering and working abroad; and the drug trade and gang activity in Juarez, Mexico
- Tai Chi, Hula and Futsal events
- Speed Traveling—an international exposé on favorite places visited by UNH faculty, staff and students (see 2012 Speed Traveling video)
- and much more...
