UMBC International Education Services (IES) and the English Language Institute (ELI) have begun planning International Education Week 2020! IEW is a joint initiative between the US Department of State and the Department of Education hosted by universities annually in mid-November. It’s an opportunity to highlight international initiatives on campus, celebrate the international student population, and expose domestic students to international experiences they would not otherwise know.
International Education Week: November 16-20, 2020
All 2020 IEW events will be held virtually

Planning Committee Search:
IES and the ELI are looking to form a planning committee for International Education Week, and we would like a member(s) of your department to be a part of it. This committee will organize and promote UMBC’s International Education Week. They will ensure the week creates a fun, engaging, and educational week of programming for all members of the UMBC community. Currently, the committee meets biweekly and is in the early stages of the planning process
If you are interested in joining the IEW Planning Committee please email firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible!
Event Proposal Submissions:
If no member of your department is able to join the planning committee, we are still strongly encouraging all departments across campus to get involved by hosting a virtual event, for students (current and prospective), staff, faculty and/or the wider UMBC community during IEW. A separate email will be sent at that time, with additional information on all things planning IEW Proposals and Events
IEW also supports and helps to further promote the university-wide effort towards internationalization. For further information regarding International Education Week contact us at email@example.com. Additionally, you may visit the official website at https://iew.state.gov/ and see the attached infographic.
We hope you're inspired and energized to bring the world to UMBC!
