International Education Week is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and intercultural exchange worldwide. IEW aims to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences.

URI’s International Education Week Planning Committee invites degree-granting colleges, departments, centers, and student organizations to submit event proposals celebrating international education opportunities and showcasing URI’s efforts in meeting the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

IEW is a national celebration initiated by the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education. This year, IEW will showcase global research, promote study-away opportunities, foster diversity and inclusion, and support internationalization efforts.

If you are interested in hosting an event during IEW, please submit your event information by Sunday, October 1, 2023.
