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.
During the 2019 International Education Week at UC Davis, Global Affairs featured short films by UC Davis students describing their study, research, and service experiences from 10 countries around the world. From studying GIS in Bhutan, to protecting sea turtle eggs in Taiwan, to treating elephants in Thailand, and studying fashion design in France, students shared from their wide array of experiences and provide a vision for what is possible for other students at UC Davis.
UC Davis is celebrating International Education Week from Nov. 18 to Nov. 22, 2019 — a nationally recognized event resulting from a joint initiative between the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education. This week is a result of “efforts to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn and exchange experiences,” according to the International Education Week website.
