International Education Week 2016

A campus celebration of international education

UCLA International Institute, November 7, 2016 — The UCLA International Institute is proud to celebrate International Education Week 2016 (November 14–18) , an initiative of the U.S. Departments of State and Education.

One of the major goals of UCLA Vice Provost Cindy Fan, who oversees the International Institute, is to encourage and help every student at UCLA, regardless of discipline or major, to study abroad.

To study abroad is to change a life — to make it bigger, more open to new ideas and discovery. Studying and volunteering in other countries teaches students that people the world over have a stake in one another’s success and share many problems that require collaborative solutions. By working to make the experience of international study, research and internships universal among UCLA undergraduates, the Institute seeks to prepare a new generation of leaders who have direct experience of the world — and can use that experience to help resolve its crucial challenges.
