UCF Global invites faculty, staff and students to celebrate International Education Week (IEW), Nov. 13 – 17, 2017.

International Education Week is a joint initiative between the U.S. Departments of State and Education, recognizing the benefits of international education and exchange across campuses worldwide. A series of events will take place across campus highlighting international affairs, cultural diversity and the positive impact the international community has made on Central Florida.

One of the events is the 10th Annual International Breakfast. In collaboration with Global Perspectives, the program will cover the importance of globalization in today’s world.

The breakfast will take place in the Student Union Pegasus Ballroom on Nov. 13, 8-10:30 a.m., with featured keynote speaker Lieutenant General (Ret.) Mark Hertling, former Commanding General of U.S. Army Europe, who is currently leading programs for Global Partnering, Leadership Development and Health Performance Strategies at Florida Hospital in Orlando. He will be accompanied by UCF’s very own Dr. Timothy Hawthorne and Dr. Maria Santana. This year’s presentation has been refreshed to resemble a TED-style talk and we hope you can join us for the event.

Tickets are $25 per person or $250 for a table of 10. To secure tickets through UCF Global, please contact Gerardo Santiago at gerardo.santiago@ucf.edu.

If your department or division is planning to host an event during IEW, UCF Global will be promoting the week’s events online and through social media. We would be excited to share your events on our channels. Please email farrell.calabrese@ucf.edu with times, dates and locations. You can also tag us on Facebook or Instagram (@UCFInternational), and we encourage everyone to use the #UCFIEW17 and #GlobalKnights hashtags in your posts.
