International Education Week (IEW), November 16-20, 2020, is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education is an effort to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences.
About the Event:
The Office of International Students and Scholars is thrilled to partner with UCSB’s Multicultural Center for a new event series: Conscious Conversations. Conscious Conversations offers an intimate space for informal conversations around a wide array of local and global current events. Join us in a candid conversation as we reflect back to December 2019 when Covid-19 began to spread around the world. Together we will look at the global and local response to the pandemic and the impacts felt by UCSB’s international community. Where were you as the pandemic crossed cultures and geopolitical borders? Come share your story and listen to others. This event is open to domestic and international students, staff and scholars with a special welcome to those who are far from home during COVID-19.
