International Education Week
17-21 November 2014
International Education Week is a wonderful opportunity to recognize the importance of the diverse population on the UT Tyler campus. Bringing students together for International Education Week gives them a chance to connect with one another during an intensely busy time in the semester.

What is International Education Week?
International Education Week (IEW) is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Department of Education that provides an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This annual initiative aims to promote international understanding and build support for international educational exchange by encouraging the development of programs that prepare Americans to live and work in a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study in the United States. IEW was first held in 2000 and today it's celebrated in more than 100 countries worldwide.
