International Education Week

International Education Week

Join the International Education Centre in celebrating diversity, culture, and international education at UTM! From November 14th – November 18th, the IEC along with on-campus partners, UofT faculty, and community members will be talking about all things global! 

Our theme this year is Making Connections. Fall 2022 will not only bring back in-person learning but also a unique opportunity to observe and embrace the full campus experience once again.  

Making Connections continues to build from where we left off.  This year, the IEC is planning events that will internationalize the experience by providing UTM’s students, staff, faculty, and other community members in-person opportunities to (re)connect with and learn from each other.  

Participating registered UTM students are eligible for CCR recognition and prizes.


Check back in October for a full and complete list of offerings!
