Upcoming Events and Programs

International Education Week (November 1620, 2020)

International Education Week (IEW) is an annual celebration of the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide.  During this week, the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education work jointly to promote programs that prepare U.S. Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn and exchange experiences.  International students and scholars admitted into academic programs, who participate in education programs abroad or join experiential programs like the Center for Career Education's Columbia Experience Overseas (CEO) program are examples of our day-to-day commitment to a globally connected world. 

We encourage you to create, propose, or participate in events that promote international education, celebrate global engagement and embrace intercultural learning in the U.S. or abroad. Events provided by the International Resource Team and supported by the International Student Advisory Board (ISAB) will be posted on this web page and as Facebook events.  

We also support and encourage participation in the annual Transgender Day of Remembrance.  Trans Awareness Week coincides with IEW. See LGBTQ @ Columbia for events related to Transgender Awareness Week.
