INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION WEEK
IEW 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 is part of our efforts to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment, and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences.
As part of this initiative, Eastern Illinois University and Charleston annually celebrate the tremendous benefits of international education and exchange. We appreciated your participation in the many IEW activities and experiences last year, and we are anticipating an exciting week of events in November 2020!
