I am pleased to announce and encourage faculty, staff and students to participate in International Education Week from November 17 - 21, 2008. The purpose of these activities is to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. The week is dedicated to enhancing international awareness across UC San Diego as well as to reinforcing the importance of the exchange of students and scholars across borders. Details and a complete schedule of events can be viewed at: http://iew.ucsd.edu/calendar.html.
In recognition of this annual event, I am approving one hour of administrative leave with pay that employees may apply to their attendance at an International Education Week event. Supervisors are asked to allow employees one hour of administrative leave with pay to attend an International Education Week event when the absence does not infringe upon the performance of required job duties or patient care.
Inquiries regarding the events may be directed to Dulce Dorado, Director of International Student Office (858-534-3730 or firstname.lastname@example.org), or Christi Gilhoi, Director of International House (858-822-2215 or email@example.com).
