Celebrating International Education Week: Adler University highlights opportunities for worldwide exchanges

In celebration of International Education Week (IEW), Adler University is hosting several virtual events highlighting the University’s efforts and initiatives that advance a global exchange of ideas and experiences.

Held Nov. 13-17, IEW is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of State that provides the opportunity to underscore the value of global and cultural competencies and promote programs that help students and teachers develop global skills for success in the 21st century. It celebrates the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide.

This year’s theme, “The Future is…,” explores the many ways international education is driving us into the future.

At Adler, the IEW celebration will include virtual events highlighting its partnership with the Foundation for Educational Exchange Between Canada and the United States of America (Fulbright Canada), Adler’s study abroad programs, and a spotlight on the University’s ever-growing international community of students and alums.

  • Study Abroad at Adler on Nov. 13, noon-1 p.m. CST/10-11 a.m. PST: This session explores the opportunities available for studying abroad. Attendees can learn from students reflecting on past experiences and hear from others on their future international education plans.
  • Fulbright/Fulbright Canada Opportunities for Faculty and Students on Nov. 15, noon-1 p.m. CST; 10-11 a.m. PST: In fulfilling the mission of connecting people and connecting nations, did you know that Fulbright/Fulbright Canada funds students and faculty to study and/or conduct research abroad? This webinar will provide information about the various programs sponsored by Fulbright/Fulbright Canada available to Adler faculty and students.
  • Exploring the Impact of International Education on the Individual and Beyond on Nov. 16, 2-3 p.m. CST/noon-1 p.m. PST: This panel of current international students and alums will capture the experiences and perspectives of international students, including the unique challenges they face when leaving their home country to study abroad. It will also explore how experience culture shapes experience — both that of the student’s home country and the country they’ve entered to study. In addition to reflecting on their individual journeys, panelists will look ahead to the future and share their thoughts on how an international education experience may positively impact their communities.

IEW was developed in April 2000 — through an executive memorandum by President Bill Clinton — as part of an effort to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences. Since then, IEW has been embraced by the Canadian Bureau for International Education and universities and colleges worldwide, providing a platform for students around the globe to share their cultures and the benefits of international educational exchange programs.
