Full Summary:

No summary paragraph submitted.

Georgia Tech has long been a leader in providing opportunities for students to experience other cultures, develop critical global competencies, and understand the global implications of their disciplines. But did you know that each year there is a week devoted to helping students, staff, and faculty to understand what international opportunities are open to them on campus?

This week is known as International Education Week (IEW) and 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 or participate in an exchange experience in the U.S.

Georgia Tech celebrates 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. The Office of International Education’s Photo Contest and International Coffee Hour occur annually and new events encouraging global engagement are introduced each year. This year, IEW will be from November 14-18. To learn more about the events and activities that will take place on campus, please go to: https://iew.gatech.edu/.

If you have questions or would like more information, please don’t hesitate to contact us at: info@oie.gatech.edu
