Led as a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education, UNI highlights cross-campus efforts to prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from other countries to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States. See below our schedule of events so far and look forward to more updates in the coming weeks!
