International Education Week (IEW) is a world-wide celebration of international education endeavors. The U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education initiated IEW in 2000. The purpose of IEW is to promote and celebrate international programs and to encourage participation in them.
Students, faculty, and staff at the University engage in a variety of study abroad programs, research, collaboration, and service across the globe. All of these activities result in a knowledge exchange that enriches the community on grounds and around the world.
IEW will showcase international activities at the University through a series of events throughout the week of November 16th. Please continue to check back for updated information about the schedule of events.
