International Education Week (November 18-22, 2019) is a national week of the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Department of Education that celebrates the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. Global Affairs, in collaboration with UC Davis partners, plans and hosts a diversity of International Education Week programming here on campus and encourages students, faculty, and staff to share their international stories and experiences on social media using #GlobalAggies.
Join us as UC Davis students, faculty and staff regale us with personal stories about mountain top rescues, troubles at the border, and treetop hideouts! Through the art of storytelling we create connection and understanding of who we are as a global university.

UC Davis classes in Davis and Sacramento are canceled on Tuesday, November 13, due to poor air quality as a result of the Butte County fires. While the campus is open, we have canceled today's International Fair at the International Center due to poor air quality and classes being canceled.
The internationally-focused intentions of UC Davis fall under the responsibility of Global Affairs, which encompasses programs including Study Abroad and Services for International Students and Scholars. This year, Global Affairs hosted its 15th International Education Week.
