BUFFALO, N.Y. — The University at Buffalo will celebrate International Education Week (IEW) Nov. 17-21 with a variety of events, including a keynote speech by award-winning author Dahr Jamail about his experiences as an unembedded journalist in Iraq.

UB joins colleges and universities across the country in celebrating IEW, a joint initiative of the U.S. departments of State and Education 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.

The celebration is particularly relevant at UB, which is ranked 13th among 2,700 accredited U.S. universities in international enrollment, according to an annual report released by the Institute of International Education.

Events to be held throughout the week include presentations showcasing UB’s global outreach efforts, dance and musical performances, film screenings, food tastings and exhibitions.
