Global Month

Opt Out of the Ordinary

November 1 - 30

This month, opt out of the ordinary and, instead, seek out the new! Join us for a celebration of all things global at UD to coincide with International Education Week, an initiative sponsored by the U.S. Departments of State and Education. No matter where you're from⁠— or where you're going⁠— we've got a world of opportunities for you. 

International Education Week (IEW) is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education is a part of the nationwide effort to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences.
