We're looking forward to International Education Week (IEW) 2022, November 14-18!

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.

Each year, Global Education collaborates across campus to bring the KSU community a schedule of engaging events and activities for International Education Week.
