International Education Week is Here!
International Education Week (IEW) will be in full swing starting November 14, 2011 and will continue through November 18! IEW is a joint venture of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education that celebrates the benefits of international exchange and education worldwide. The annual initiative was first held in 2000 and today is celebrated in more than 100 countries worldwide. The goal of IEW is to promote study abroad and exchange programs that prepare students from the U.S. to live and work in a global environment while attracting future leaders from abroad to study in the United States. The event is critical to developing mutual understanding and respect, building leadership abroad, and investing in future relations between the United States and people from around the world. The week’s events will include a study abroad photo contest, employment workshops for international students, study abroad information sessions, staff workshops, International Student Association activities, Friday Fest, and an end of the week reception.
