International Education Week, November 14–18, underscores the critical role of education in bridging gaps and promoting opportunity for people in the U.S. and around the world. The University of Hawaiʻi joins this celebration, recognizing that international understanding and collaboration are essential in a globally interconnected world, where issues such as sustainability and environmental conservation transcend national borders. International education provides the connections that build understanding among citizens and future leaders at home and abroad.
