International Education Week USD is celebrating International Education Week Nov. 14-18.

VERMILLION, S.D. – The Center for Academic & Global Engagement at the University of South Dakota is highlighting global education from Nov. 14-18 with activities and events in honor of International Education Week.

The university and community members are invited to celebrate cultures from around the world by participating in a cultural fair with flags, clothing and other special items from around the world; a passport workshop; a study abroad alumni panel and tea time and revealing of the International Education Photo Contest winners.

“Attending the expositions, workshops, and panels we offer during International Education Week will not only help students witness the richness of diversity we have on our campus, but will also provide helpful information on various study abroad opportunities,” said Virginija Marija, coordinator for academic engagement and one of the International Education Week planners.

International Education Week is a collaboration between the U.S. Departments of State and Education, as well as worldwide communities. The event creates connections across diverse global environments, offering attendees an enjoyable and educational experience like no other.
