February is International Opportunities Month

February 2008 features the eighth annual International Opportunities Month (IOM) on the UW-Madison campus, organized by a campus-wide committee of globally focused organizations, chaired by CIBER. Throughout the month, students of all majors can attend IOM events to learn about global issues and to hear about ways to travel, work, study and volunteer abroad. UW-Madison students have demonstrated a significant amount of interest in going abroad–in 2005-2006, more than 1,600 of them studied overseas, an increase of 10 percent over the previous year. IOM serves to meet this growing demand for international opportunities by creating a month-long series of events that will inspire students to continue their global studies and travels.
