International Education Week

November 17-21, 2014

International Education Week (IEW) is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Department of Education. IEW is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This annual initiative aims to promote international understanding and build support for international educational exchange by encouraging the development of programs that prepare Americans to live and work in a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study in the United States.
