What is International Education Week?

International Education Week (IEW) is a national celebration held in November that showcases the importance and benefits of international education and exchange around the world. IEW plays an important role in the effort to promote programs that prepare U.S. students for a global environment and to attract future leaders from abroad to study and exchange experiences.
