International Education Week

International Education Week

International Education Week serves as a reminder that college and university campuses play a special part in shaping the awareness of our role in the global village.  UNC Charlotte faculty, staff and students are encouraged to explore the value of education abroad, the richness that is brought into our classrooms and departments by international students and faculty, and the benefits derived from all international programs on campus.
