International Education Week (IEW)
International Education Week (IEW) is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of State. Inaugurated by President Bill Clinton in 2000, IEW celebrates the importance and benefits of international education in the U.S. and around the world. Today, IEW is celebrated in more than 100 countries worldwide.
Since its inception in 2000, IEW has helped to showcase international education and foster inter-cultural understanding at San Francisco State University and beyond. IEW's focus has always been to promote awareness and understanding of our world’s diverse cultures both abroad, as well as within our own campus community. We hope that this year’s exciting events will provide you with a wealth of fun and interesting opportunities to experience the many cultures that are part of the SF State community through food, music, dance, lectures and more.
We encourage members of the San Francisco State University community to plan events and activities to highlight how international education does the following:
- Advances learning and scholarship
- Builds understanding and respect among different peoples
- Enhances constructive leadership in the global community
