Florida State University celebrates another year of International Education Month through a variety of events in November. During this time, the university highlights the importance of its international programs that are provided, as well as students coming from international waters and the university’s presence abroad.
International Education Month began as a week-long celebration called International Education Week and was created in 2001 by the United States Department of State and Department of Education.
FSU is known for being an award-winning national leader in campus internationalization, so all of the events were packed into the month in order to maximize the celebration.
FSU President Richard McCullough kicked off the month with an opening reception, followed by the Going Global Showcase, an event that highlighted students’ international experiences.
“We actually have amazing facilities at all of those programs and offer those opportunities for students to study abroad,” McCullough said. “We’re starting to really attract a large number of international students as our reputation continues to grow in both research and education, but just the culture that we provide here at Florida State is very welcoming.”
