Students participated in more than 30 events on campus during International Education Week.

On November 12-16, 2018, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln celebrated International Education Week (IEW) across campus with more than 30 events organized by 20+ campus partners. The Office of Global Strategies coordinated the schedule and created a 2018 recap to remember the week.

IEW is a joint initiative of the Department of State and Department of Education that celebrates the benefits of worldwide exchange and prepares Americans for a global environment. From the launch of the first annual IEW Flag Hunt to the first on-campus Hult Prize competition, from international documentaries and professional opportunities abroad, UNL’s 2018 IEW celebration offered students, faculty and staff a chance to explore the world.
