Mānoa International Education Week

November 13 – 18, 2017

Invitation from Assistant Vice Chancellor for International & Exchange Programs Andy Sutton:

Dear UHM campus community,

Students, faculty and staff are invited to get involved in the 2017 Mānoa International Education Week (MIEW), which will be held Monday through Saturday, November 13 to 18. The purpose of this week is to showcase UHM international education in celebration of National International Education Week, co-sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and Department of Education.

Planning is currently underway. There are several ways to get involved:

Submit your international-themed event to the MIEW Calendar: If you have an international education-themed event already planned during that week or would like to plan one, submit your event to be included in the calendar of events. Events may include lectures, guest speakers, films, performances, training, workshops, etc.

Sign up to perform at the Lunchtime Culture Breaks: Performances will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Campus Center Courtyard throughout the week. Music, dance and other performing art forms are welcome. Audience participation is encouraged.

Host a table at the International Education Fair: Join the celebration by sponsoring a table on Wednesday, November 15, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Showcase your program, club or department's international activities, while providing an interactive activity that highlights the culture(s) your organization represents, the work you do, or international education in general.

For more information and to sign up to get involved, visit the MIEW 2017 website:

Educating ourselves about the world is woven throughout the fabric of our degree programs, co-curricular programs and research activities, and thus, is so important at UH Manoa. I look forward to celebrating international education with you during Manoa International Education Week.
