Starting today UC Davis is hosting a multitude of talks, workshops and film screenings as part of International Education Week, a joint initiative of the US Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education.
International Education Week is part of nationwide efforts to prepare Americans for a global environment and attract students to take advantage of opportunities abroad.
On Wednesday, the Internship and Career Center invites students to 234 South Hall at 12:10 p.m. to learn how to market their overseas experiences. This event is appropriate for those wishing to translate their new skills when applying for internships, jobs and graduate school or for those curious about the professional benefits of studying or interning abroad.
The Internship and Career Center is also putting on a talk on Thursday where students can hear from a panel of professionals about their international careers. This event takes place at 3:10 p.m. in 114 South Hall.
Other highlights include a belly dancing lesson on Tuesday at 7 p.m. and a global forum about sustainability at 11 a.m. on Friday, both at the International House on 10 College Park.
University Outreach and International Programs and the International House Davis provide financial support for the week, with assistance from Campus Community Book Project, Education Abroad Center, Hemispheric Institute on the Americas, Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program, Internship and Career Center, Office of Campus Community Relations, Services for International Students and Scholars, Student Housing and UC Davis Extension.
