NOVEMBER 13-17, 2017

International Education Week, a nationally observed celebration presented by the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education, aims to highlight the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. Universities, colleges, K-12 schools, non profit organizations, and local governments are encouraged to participate by hosting events that display the international presence at their institution. Furman University is proud to celebrate International Education Week.

The most recent statistics were released this morning. Read the 2017 Open Doors Fast Facts – and see the 2017 Infographics.

We start the week with the “Stick A Pin In It” map display in the research commons of the James B. Duke library.  We invite our international students, faculty and staff to stick a “flag pin” on their hometown and our domestic students, faculty and staff to stick a “ball pin” on a destination they most want to visit. Happy pinning!

Be sure to check out “Jimmy’s Picks” this week.  Also located in the research commons, Jimmy has created the ultimate travel display. Let him help you choose your next MayX or semester study abroad destination.
