UCLA International Institute, November 5, 2018 — The UCLA International Institute is proud to celebrate International Education Week 2018 (November 13–16), an initiative of the U.S. Departments of State and Education.
One of the major goals of UCLA Vice Provost Cindy Fan, who oversees the International Institute, is to enable as many UCLA students as possible — regardless of discipline or major — to gain international experience via campus classes, study abroad, international research, internships and/or work opportunities.
International experience opens students’ lives to new perspectives and other cultures. Studying and volunteering abroad teaches Bruins that people the world over have a stake in one another’s success and share many problems that require global perspectives and collaborative solutions.
