International Education and Awareness Weeks

International Education Week (fall semester) and International Awareness Week (spring semester) gives opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education is part of our efforts to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States.  

OU's International Programming contributes to IEW by providing cultural events where international students share about their cultures to American students. Examples have included a Beauty Panel, a LGBTQ Panel, individual presentations, and other discussions about international career choices.
