International Education Week is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education has been celebrated for 20 years at institutions across the United States. International Week at Rutgers-Camden is a week-long celebration of international education, diversity, inclusion, and cultural awareness. It is intended to recognize international students, education abroad, and to promote Rutgers-Camden programs that prepare students for global citizenship.

International Week 2022 | November 14-18, 2022

International Week Flags
In celebration of International Week, world flags are raised in the Scarlet Lounge of the Rutgers-Camden Campus Center representing our diverse international student body. We hope this is a small way that our international students might feel welcomed at Rutgers-Camden and reminds all students, faculty, and staff that globalization is an important goal for our university.
