A joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education, each year International Education Week promotes programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States.
Here’s what the International Programs and Services Office has planned on our two campuses:
