International Education Week 2013November 20, 2013
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 our efforts to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States. IEW was first held in 2000 and today it’s celebrated in more than 100 countries worldwide.
As part of International Education week, Truman clubs and organizations sponsored events such as the African Students’ Association Food Fest, the Taste of Islam Muslim Students Association Dinner, the Latin American Students Discussion Panel, the International Fashion Show, a Study Abroad Reception, and an International Flag Display in the Student Union Building.
