International Education Week
International Education Week (IEW) takes place Tuesday, November 19–Friday, November 22 and celebrates the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. It is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education to promote programs that prepare U.S. Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn and exchange experiences. The week also celebrates international students who study in the U.S. colleges and universities.
We encourage you to create events or participate in events that promote international education, celebrate global engagement and embrace intercultural learning. For more information on upcoming IEW events, please check out our events page.
