November Is for International Education

The Office of International Affairs will sponsor more than 25 events as part of NC State’s International Education Month, beginning on Tuesday with “Think and Do Globally,” an information session that details global engagement opportunities for NC State faculty and staff.

The U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs sponsor a weeklong initiative to promote programs  that prepare Americans for global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn and exchange experiences in the United States.

NC State takes the awareness initiative to a whole new level by sponsoring events throughout the month of November.
