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 is part of our efforts to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States.

Across Africa by Bicycle - 7,500 Miles for MelanomaMonday, Sept. 28 at 4:00 p.m., as part of a Global Studies class, in the Fishbowl:In 2010, new faculty member Dana Farrell Ginestet set out to complete an epic journey across Africa by bicycle. The 7,375 mile ride started in Cairo, Egypt, and ended four months later in Cape Town, South Africa. She cycled through 10 countries, across rugged and magnificent landscapes, and experienced diverse and indigenous cultures throughout the journey. This was a supported ride, through the Tour d’Afrique, and is one of the longest and most challenging bicycle expeditions in the world. Dana used the ride to raise money for the Joanna M. Nicolay Melanoma Foundation, a non-profit organization that promotes prevention, early detection, and research to end melanoma. Dana will present a slideshow and share stories from this exciting adventure. Please join us to see what Africa looks like from the seat of a bicycle!
