International Education Week

International Education Week (IEW) is an initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education that draws attention to the value of international education. Aligning with the vision of Miami 2020 to “promote a diverse culture of inclusion, integrity, and collaboration that deepens understanding and embraces intercultural and global experiences,” Miami University celebrates IEW annually with a wide range of activities, international food, and events.

Does your department have a globally-themed event taking place during IEW? If so, contact Kristin Magyari and we will add it to the IEW schedule of events!

Events for 2017 will be announced as they are planned.
