Celebrating Collaboration Across Cultures

Inclusivity and cooperation lead to better ideas and optimal engineering solutions for all people. The UA College of Engineering is dedicated to engaging people of diverse cultures, backgrounds and experiences and proud to join our campus partners in celebrating international education.

International education advances cultural understanding and prepares students to work in a global society. Honoring those involved with global exchange, the UA Office of Global Initiatives is coordinating a series of events during International Education Week, an initiative of the U.S. State and Education departments.
