CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The University of Northern Iowa will host educators from around the world at the 27th annual UNI Overseas Recruiting Fair at the Five Sullivan Brothers Convention Center in Waterloo, Friday through Sunday, Feb. 21-23.

The oldest recruiting event of its kind in the world, last year the fair attracted more than 120 American international schools representing 65 countries and 570 teaching candidates. The UNI Overseas Recruiting Fair gives elementary and secondary educators the opportunity to meet and interview with international schools. Most schools that attend are affiliated with American embassies worldwide. This year, more than 120 schools and 600 teachers are expected. Pre-registration is required.

'In a time of great uncertainty in our changing world, it is remarkable to experience such a true commitment to teaching and learning,' said Tracey Roling, assistant director of education career services with the UNI Career Center. 'The UNI Career Center's Overseas Placement Service has served nearly 17,000 educators since we began the Fair in 1976.'
