International Education Week
An initiative of the U.S. Departments of State and Education, International Education Week (IEW) is part of an effort to promote international
understanding and build support for international educational exchange. International Education Week is celebrated at UB to share the richness of other cultures, expose members of the UB and Buffalo communities to the diverse perspectives of those cultures and, hopefully, increase community members’ cross-cultural awareness, curiosity and knowledge. IEW is celebrated at UB through performances, lectures, presentations, films, displays and exhibitions.
