International Education Week (IEW) is an opportunity to celebrate world cultures, people, and language while affirming the critical role that international exchange and education plays in fostering mutual understanding.

Inaugurated by President Clinton in 2000, as a joint initiative by the US Department of State and the Department of Education, International Education Week is celebrated annually in more than 100 countries across the world to symbolize the importance of cross-cultural learning. 

How will you celebrate International Education Week?  Ride the wave by sharing your cultural heritage, exploring international career paths, competing in a soccer tournament or expanding your horizons by attending the Global Fair.  IEW is an opportunity to celebrate the rich variety of campus cultures through a week full of dynamic events!
