Celebrate diversity during International Education Week November 14-18!

International Education Week (IEW) at UB

IEW is celebrated at UB to expose members of the UB community to the diverse perspectives of other cultures and, hopefully, to increase community members’ cross-cultural awareness, curiosity and knowledge. Through performances, lectures, presentations, films, displays and exhibitions, UB's IEW presents the richness of other cultures and promotes the benefits of international education for our campus and greater community of Western New York.
