Upper Iowa University's Center for International Education held an open house during Homecoming to celebrate the establishment of the International House, a gathering place for all international students on the Fayette campus.
FAYETTE, Iowa (October 10, 2013) – Students, faculty and staff gathered recently to celebrate the establishment of Upper Iowa University's Center for International Education (CIE) and its International House as part of the week's Homecoming festivities. The CIE will not only serve as the nerve center of UIU's international programming and operations, but also as a central place where students can gather and feel a little bit closer to home.
"We are very excited to be able to provide a home away from home for our international students at the new International House," said Ismael Betancourt, vice president for International Education. "It is our mission that the CIE serve as the catalyst for the internationalization of the campus. Our goal is to provide our students, both domestic and international, with global learning experiences that will enhance their personal and professional careers, leading to positive outcomes for the student and the community."
