|Celebrate International Education Week Nov. 16-17|
International Education Week is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education is part of our efforts to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States. This semester, UND is serving an international population of 772 people from 63 countries. In addition, UND has 27 agreements with institutions for Education Abroad and over 200 students will participate in Study Abroad opportunities during the 2006-2007 academic year.
During International Education Week, the Office of International Programs encourages the UND community to take the opportunity to discuss the values of international education, to take a moment to find out about another country or culture represented on the UND campus or to think about ways that you can participate in promoting international education at UND. In addition we invite you to participate in the following events in honor of International Education Week:
Thursday, Nov. 16: Saudi Arabia Night, International Centre 7 p.m.; Friday, Nov. 17: International Quiz Bowl Semi Finals and Finals, Loading Dock, 5:30 p.m.
