International Education Week (Nov 11-15)


International Education Week (IEW) is an opportunity to recognize the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This joint initiative with 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 in the United States.

Western Kentucky University, led by the Office of International Programs (OIP), will be participating in IEW, held November 11-16, 2013.

Coming soon: IEW 2013 Schedule

What we are hoping to see for the IEW 2013:
