International Education Week 2017

UCLA International Institute, December 4, 2017 — International Education Week (IEW) took UCLA by storm this year. As shown in the photo album in the following page, the UCLA International Institute led a team of organizing partners in creating and hosting a series of high-profile events across campus from November 13 through 17, 2017 to celebrate international education and exchange on campus. In addition to these featured events, many campus units — such as UNEX, the Peace Corps recruiting office, the Burkle Center and even the University of California Trust (UK) Office in London — organized special events specifically for IEW.

Opportunities to learn about UCLA’s international education resources included discussions between American and international students at the UCLA Powell Conversation Café; information sessions on international fellowships, grants and internships at the International Education Resource Fair; a speech on health equity by Dr. Kelsey Martin, dean of the Geffen School of Medicine, at the UCLA Global Conversation; and imbibing international coffees and teas at the Dashew Center’s World Café.

Student-centered events over the course of the week included the Study Abroad Photo & Short Film Contest, a night of performances at Bruins Around the World, an open mic and storytelling gallery at Kerckhoff Hall (“The World at UCLA”) and the participatory “UCLA in a Map” event at Kerckhoff Patio. more
