The UCLA International Institute is celebrating international education by hosting events on campus for International Education Week, an annual celebration sponsored by the U.S. departments of Education and State. 

This year’s International Education Week, created by a team led by Cindy Fan, UCLA vice provost for international studies and global engagement, will celebrate UCLA Study Abroad Office’s achievement of its 2020 goal to have 25 percent of all undergraduates study abroad. The event will also raise funds to help more students across campus study abroad as part of the UCLA Centennial Campaign.
