About IEW

ABOUT IEW  International education advances cultural understanding and the protection of cultural heritage while also preparing individuals to work in a global society. Honoring those benefits and others associated with international education and global exchange, the UA is hosting a series of events during International Education Week (IEW), which is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education established in 2000.

At the UA, IEW is coordinated by the Office of Global Initiatives, which provides support to departments, faculty, researchers, staff and students who are interested in participating in international exchange. IEW events are hosted by colleges, departments and other units across campus.


IEW EVENTS at the University of Arizona are led by the Office of Global Initiatives.
