International Education Week (IEW) is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education that promotes programs and relationship-building that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences. Celebrated since 2000, this year IEW takes place November 16-20 and will be celebrated worldwide. We encourage the participation of individuals, schools, and universities to join the IEW celebrations with their own events. You can see what initiatives are being planned all over the world on the this website (pending updates): You can also send a description of your program through that website to invite other partners or audiences to join your event.
