Amid COVID-19 chaos – rising cases, closing borders, tighter travel restrictions, and global animosity – University of Iowa International Programs is using International Education Week to recognize the value of global citizenship and move toward pillars of diversity, equity, and inclusion across campus and in the international sphere.

The week-long celebration kicked off Nov. 16 with a series of events, including a WorldCanvass presentation where current and former Hawkeyes were recognized by UI President Bruce Harreld for their international achievements.

Harreld presented the International Impact Award to Sarah Lande and Patrick and Susan Keefe, and Global Student Awards to Mishma Nixon and Nicolas Stroup.
