International Education Week

International Education Week (IEW), a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of Education and U.S. Department of State, is a time to promote programs that improve international understanding, increase intercultural competency and support the exchange of international students and scholars.
To celebrate IEW at SCSU, the Center for International Studies highlights campus events, large and small, that provide a global perspective.
Every year, we invite you to include your internationally focused campus events in the IEW schedule, which we will post during the first week in November.

- Event Name

Passport to the World
Passport to the World is a free annual event that is held every year during International Education Week. It is put on by International Student Association.
The event is centered around a different theme each year and is specifically geared toward children. During Passport to the World, student organizations representing countries and regions from all over the world have booths where “global citizens” can stop by to learn from and interact with student representatives. A special passport is given to all participants to keep track of their journey around the world.Save the date! Passport to the World 2012 will be on Sunday, November 11 from 4-6pm in the Atwood Ballroom. Event poster coming soon!
