International Education Week (IEW)

EMPOWERING YOUTH THROUGH INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION

International education advances cultural understanding and the protection of cultural heritage while also preparing individuals to work in a global society. To honor those benefits and others associated with international education and global exchange, the University of New Mexico (UNM) is hosting a series of events during International Education Week (IEW), which is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education established in 2000.

At UNM, IEW is coordinated by the Global Education Office, which provides support to departments, faculty, researchers, staff and students who are interested in participating in international exchange.

We strongly encourage participation from colleges, departments, clubs, organizations, or centers. In particular, we would like to encourage opportunities that engage the Albuquerque community. Every UNM student should have an opportunity for international connection.
