International Education Week

IPE invites you to join us in celebrating International Education Week, November 13-17, 2017IEW is a nationwide endeavor spearheaded by the US Departments of State and Education to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange. The University of Michigan values intercultural awareness and the international exchange of ideas; and the CoE is proud that our Michigan Engineers demonstrate curiosity, innovation, and collaboration that crosses international boundaries.

Join us for our International Education Week Events Series and engage with international and domestic students on campus who have been abroad to explore other cultures and begin to plan your own international experience.
