Each year, International Faculty and Scholars recognizes our visiting scholars at the Global Excellence Reception held during International Education Week (IEW).
International Education Week (IEW) is the annual nationwide celebration of international education. At the 2011 event during a live press release, U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan spoke to the importance of this joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education. It's part of a continuing promotion of programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States. Governor Brewer also signed a proclamation in support of this national celebration in the state of Arizona.
The dates for International Education Week 2019 are November 18-22, 2019.
