November 15 – 19, 2010 has been designated as International Education Week.

International Education Week (IEW) was established by the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education to promote awareness and visibility for the growing global context of higher education in the United States. The University of Florida is proud to be a part of this event, taking place this year during the period November 15-19. With almost 5,000 international students from over 100 different countries, nearly 2000 international scholars and faculty on campus, and over 2,000 students who study abroad in over 50 countries, UF is a proud promoter of international education, scholarship, and understanding.

We encourage the participation of all colleges, departments, and UF units interested in international education and exchange activities in planned events on campus that week.

A list of activities hosted by the International Center, as well as other UF events marking IEW will be posted at
