International Education Week (IEW), November 13th through 17th, starts today!
International Education Week is an opportunity to celebrate world cultures, people, and language while affirming the critical role that international exchange and education play in fostering mutual understanding. Inaugurated by President Clinton in 2000, IEW is a joint initiative by the US Department of State and the Department of Education and is celebrated annually in more than 100 countries across the world to symbolize the importance of cross-cultural learning.
Academic libraries have always played a vital role contributing to campus internationalization through our collections and services. This year the UNM Libraries are collaborating with UNM’s Global Education Office (GEO) to plan and host campus events for IEW. All library events will be listed on the Library calendar, the UNM calendar, and the GEO IEW calendar. Come celebrate with us!
Highlights of Library IEW Events include:
Monday, 11/13, 12-1:30
There will also be exhibits in Zimmerman, Parish, and FADL highlighting international collections and Parish Library student workers are creating some exciting internationally themed photo op boards!
