International Education Week 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 an effort to prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States. Exchanges are critical to developing mutual understanding and respect between the global community.
