International Education Week is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. It started as a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education to promote programs that prepare 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.
In 2017, the official International Education Week is November 13 through November 17.
