NC State Global Hosts International Education Month 2018

International Storytelling Competition

NC State’s Think and Do attitude stretches across campus and around the world. To celebrate the far reaches of the Wolfpack community during International Education Month (IEM), the Office of Global Engagement and its partners across campus will host a variety of exciting events.

A joint initiative between the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Department of Education, IEM promotes programs that prepare students for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn and exchange experiences. Below are six of NC State Global’s featured IEM events. View the NC State Global calendar for a full slate of programming.
