International Education Week


About International Education Week :

International Education Week is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. As part of a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education, International Education Week showcases the efforts of programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States. This year's theme is "International Education: Advancing Access for All." To learn more about International Education Week, visit the Department of State website. Or, use the hashtag #IEW2015 to join the discussion and receive updates about events!
