In 2001, the United States Department of State and Department of Education created International Education Week (IEW) to promote the benefits of international education and worldwide exchange. This week is celebrated annually across the United States and typically occurs during the month of November each year.
UGA's International Education Week 2019 is scheduled for November 18-22, 2019. In an effort to provide programs and services that prepare UGA students for a global society, ISL plans a week-long schedule of events that introduce important international education and intercultural learning opportunities on campus. Further, the IEW schedule includes opportunities to celebrate the diversity and contributions of our international campus community.
