International Education Week

International Education Week is a national celebration of the benefits of international education and global exchange. This joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Department of Education is an effort to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn and exchange experiences in the United States.

“International education is not just about physically crossing borders, but also about thinking globally in local situations.” Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs

The Center for International Affairs is proud to celebrate International Education Week and highlight the diversity of cultural events taking place in our neighborhood. Along with numerous collaborators, we develop a variety of exciting and informative events for faculty, staff, students and community members. We hope the events will help to stimulate cultural understanding in our local community and foster an inclusive worldview.
