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 the efforts to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences.
Georgia Tech celebrates International Education Week (IEW) each year with a series of events that highlight Tech's international opportunities and that recognize the international accomplishments of Tech students, faculty, and staff. With the OIE Photo Contest and International Coffee Hour recurring annually, new events encouraging global engagement are introduced each year.
