International Education Week (IEW), November 18-22, 2019, 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 a national effort to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences.

The 3MT competition was founded in 2008 by the University of Queensland in Australia, and it is now held at more than 350 colleges and universities across 59 countries worldwide. At Hood, Graduate students present their research projects each May in three minutes using just one PowerPoint slide. No other resources or props are allowed. Students are judged on clarity, pace, audience engagement and stage presence. All attendees are then welcome to cast their votes for best presentation. There is a judge’s winner and a People’s Choice Award.
