International Education Week Set to Engage Students
Howard University students experience the University of the Western Cape with South African school children.

WASHINGTON (November 8, 2012) –Howard University will present a number of programs and events including a career and study abroad fair during International Education Week from Tuesday, Nov. 13 through Friday, Nov. 16.

“International Education Week is important for the entire university community,” said Jeanne Toungara, assistant provost for international programs at Howard University. “We invite everyone to participate actively in the academic and social programs during International Education Week at Howard.”

In addition, she said Howard’s international program reflects national goals that seek to prepare college students for global engagement. The week's programs will show faculty how to internationalize their teaching, research, and student enrichment efforts. The campus events at Howard are linked to the International Education Week initiative jointly conducted by the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education.

Toungara said she hoped that bringing study abroad providers to campus would help make both short-term and semester-long programs more accessible to students. A number of student-oriented events are scheduled for International Education Week:
