UNOH’s International Day occurs in the fall each year to coincide with International Education Week.  This is a joint initiative by the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Department of Education as part of an effort to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States.
