Programs about learning abroad, meeting with others who have studied overseas, and sampling international foods are among the activities to be held as part of University of Central Florida’s International Education Week on Nov. 13-16.

The Collaboration for International Research, Communication and Learning in Education (CIRCLE) is sponsoring the program through the week that is designed to promote the opportunities and benefits of learning without borders.

Coordinated by Judit Szente, facilitator for internationalization, and Gillian Eriksson, chairwoman for CIRCLE, the program offers several events every day that include local and international faculty, schools, live webcam links to students and faculty around the world, and presentations from UCF students who have studied and worked overseas. 

Visiting professor Juliet Perumal of the University of Johannesburg, South Africa, will present on two topics: Cross Cultural Gender Perspectives, and Critical Issues in South African Education: Past, Present and Future. 

Most of the week’s events will take place in the Morgridge International Reading Center, but other activities will be held around campus.
