Celebrate International Education Week | November 13-17

International Education Week

International Education Week (IEW), November 13-17, 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 promotes programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences.

We're honoring international education by hosting a variety of events on and off campus exclusively for students, scholars, faculty and staff at The University of Texas at Austin. Join us to celebrate campus internationalization, global learning, education abroad, international enrollment, peacebuilding, research, and the economic benefits of international students in Austin, Texas, and across the United States.
