International Education Week (IEW)

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 efforts to prepare students for a global environment by studying, learning and exchanging experiences.  A number of institutions across the country acknowledge and celebrate this week.

Come celebrate the Center for International Program's 25 year anniversary by participating in International Education Week at the University of Dayton between November 2-10, 2018!  Participate in programs including global game night, language workshops, festivals, and more. Questions? Email us at
