International Education Week celebrates the many ways international education and exchange opportunities prepare citizens for community building in both national and international settings.

The University of Iowa celebrates International Education Week (IEW) each year, serving as an example of our commitment to preparing Americans for a global environment and to attract future leaders from abroad to come to the U.S.  IEW is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education, in partnership with universities around the country.

International Education Week, Nov. 15-19, serves as a bridge between cultures, if not worlds. It offers all learners the chance to pursue their curiosity about the planet’s languages and civilizations, while providing information about globally focused experiential learning opportunities at home and abroad.
