International Education Week

"International Education Week (IEW) is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Department of Education that provides an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This annual initiative aims to promote international understanding and build support for international educational exchange by encouraging the development of programs that prepare Americans to live and work in a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study in the United States." - U.S. Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs 


WKU's objective for International Education Week (IEW) is to provide events and programs that encourage the WKU community to experience diverse cultures; engage in intercultural dialogue; and learn about internationalization resources and opportunities.
