UNCW's global initiatives extend beyond the classroom. Learn more about off-campus programming, such as International Education Week in November and Intercultural Week in February. Help an international student adjust to UNCW by becoming a student mentor, conversation partner, or host family.
The Office of International Programs hosts UNCW's annual Intercultural Week which takes place every February. A full schedule of events are planned to celebrate the rich diversity of cultures found within UNCW and the Wilmington community. The week is full of films, art displays, live performances, workshops, panel discussions, formal lectures, and will culminate with an Intercultural Festival that takes place on Saturday. All events are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted. More information about this program can be found here.
