International Education Week

We're celebrating International Education Week, November 13-17. There'll be various activities on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Join us for some fun, food, games, music, and learn all about cultures and languages.

International Education Week is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education is part of our efforts to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences.
