International Education Week

The Center for Global Engagement hosts events each November to celebrate International Education Week.

"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 in the United States."
- (Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs).
