About International Education Week

A joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Department of Education, International Education Week (IEW) is an opportunity for campuses to celebrate international education in all its forms: curricular, extracurricular, formal, non-formal and everything in between. International Education Week is for everybody!

The International Education Week committee encourages all areas of campus to get involved in IEW. We want to celebrate our international community, support international initiatives on campus, and share international experiences with domestic students and communities they might not otherwise be exposed to.

Let’s bring the world to UMBC!
