Celebrating One Human Family
November 7 – December 16, 2011
Kolligian East 4th Floor
Do you have a family photo or a special object that has been gifted to you or passed down through your family that reflects your international heritage?
The UC Merced Library is presenting a special exhibit celebrating UC Merced’s 5th Annual International Education Week. This exhibit will feature your submissions and the submissions of your fellow UC Merced students, faculty, and staff. We are currently accepting photos, postcards, clothing, ephemera, or other objects that celebrate your international familial ties or ancestry.
What is International Education Week?
International Education Week (IEW) is celebrated in more than 100 countries worldwide and is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange. This annual initiative aims to promote international understanding and build support for international educational exchange by encouraging the development of programs that prepare Americans to live and work in a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study in the United States.
