International Education Week (IEW), November 18-22, 2019, is celebrated each November to recognize and bring awareness to the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. Started twenty years ago as a joint initiative of the U.S. State Department and the U.S. Department of Education, IEW encourages schools, colleges and communities across the globe to participate or host events that promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn and exchange ideas.

The NC Department of Public Instruction is gearing up for International Education Week and is offering global education programming November 4-9, 2019 as part of the effort to promote Global Education in North Carolina. A variety of IEW activities are planned, including a workshop, a proclamation from the NC State Board of Education and a Twitter Chat. For more information click to  view the PDF of the flyer.

World View believes that International Education Week is every week. We hope you can join us for an upcoming World View program that will help you to develop global competencies and deepen your knowledge of global issues, regions of the world and strategies and resources for integrating global perspectives into your learning environment.
