Virtual Exchange Day Event Highlights CIE, Aug. 7

University of Mary Washington’s Center for International Education Hosting Virtual Exchange Day Event

Exchange Day logoOn Monday, Aug. 7, 2023, the UMW Center for International Education (CIE) will participate in Exchange Day, a nationwide celebration of the power of international exchanges.

CIE will be hosting a virtual event on their social media platforms, bringing participants, alumni and the local community together for a day of celebration.

The Exchange Day event will take place all day on Aug. 7, 2023, and CIE invites university faculty, staff and students, as well as elected officials and the media, to join in amplifying the impact of this celebration on social media using the hashtags #CelebrateExchangeDay and #ExchangesImpact.

Under the motto “Eat, Play, Give,” cities across the United States will hold similar events providing international exchange program participants, alumni and their hosts an opportunity to enjoy American cuisine, share cultural diversity and customs, and give back to their local communities.

Participation in this event will help spread the word about the breadth and impact of international exchange programs in the United States.

The Center for International Education offers a wide variety of education abroad programs for UMW students to gain an invaluable international experience to supplement their degree studies. In addition to study abroad, CIE is also responsible for International Student Support Services programming and issues travel documents to all incoming international students to the university.
