International Education Week 2020

International Education Week (IEW), November 16-20, 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. We encourage the participation of all individuals and groups interested in international education and exchange activities.

For more information and to find activities across the US, please visit the Bureau of Education and Cultural Affairs website.

This year’s International Education Week will be hosted virtually November 16–20, 2020. While we won’t be having events in-person like usual, we’ve created opportunities to participate from wherever you are. Registration is required for most programs.  Click on event titles for more information.

Does your group have a globally-themed virtual event taking place during IEW? If so, e-mail the Capstone International Center at cic@ua.edu and we will add it to the IEW schedule of events!
