International Education Week 2017

Global Gators, Global Citizens…Global Goals!
The University of Florida will celebrate International Education Week (IEW) on November 13 – 17.

Under the theme “Global Gators, Global Citizens…Global Goals!”, the University of Florida is pleased to once again participate in the celebration of International Education Week (IEW), a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education.

In addition to being a U.S. top ten public university, the University of Florida is proud to be a global leader in the search to understand and to find solutions to the enormous challenges facing our globalized world.  IEW provides an annual opportunity to celebrate the multiple international achievements of our UF students, faculty and staff, and to highlight our global goals.

The Gator Nation is home to over 6,600 international students from more than 150 countries. We host over 2,000 visiting scholars every year, and more than 2,200 of our students travel abroad to more than 55 destinations annually.  On any given day, year-round, UF faculty and staff from all parts of the university can be found across the world, carrying out research, participating in conferences and workshops, or teaching.  Some 2,000 UF faculty and staff have international backgrounds by birth or education, and bring international dimensions to their job and into our classrooms and laboratories every day.

In the current challenging international climate, UF seeks to build on these tremendous resources to become a truly global university.  We invite all UF colleges, departments, and centers to celebrate their own contributions to achieving this goal by organizing international education activities during this week.

For questions related to International Education Week, and for help in publicizing your events, please contact Mabel Cardec at or 352-273-1515.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
