International Education Week

IEW-2020-2.png

International Education Week will be held at Duke from Nov. 9-13, 2020. This year’s theme is “Together Around the World.”

During the pandemic, as we’ve all learned to adjust to new ways of collaborating, we’ve come to appreciate our global connections. The week is an opportunity to highlight the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide.

To support and celebrate international students and global education, we’ll have events including professional development opportunities, seminars with global experts and a trivia night.

Throughout the week, we’ll celebrate students from Duke’s three campuses: our Durham campus, our joint venture liberal arts university in Kunshan, China and the joint Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School in Singapore.

You can follow on social media with #IEW2020 #globalduke.

Around the World in 14 Books

For International Education Week, Duke alumni and parents from around the world shared their favorite books that provide insight into the culture and history of their region. See their recommendations.

This collaborative project is sponsored by the Office of Global Affairs, Duke Alumni Association and Duke University Libraries.
