We are so excited for International Education Week- pretty much the Christmas of the study abroad world. We already talk about the benefits of study abroad year around, now we have an excuse, courtesy of the Department of State and the Department of Education. Established in 2000, as “an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide,” IEW is now celebrated in over 100 countries.
Read more about it on their website and check back in with us all week to hear from alumni, staff, students abroad and more about why international education is so important. And if you needed more of a reason, we will have some cool giveaways too (see above!)
- Check out our Alumni Ambassador Teyonna’s blog post about how study abroad impacted her
