International Education Week: November 16-20, 2020

International Education Week (IEW) at Santa Fe College, November 16-20, 2020, is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. 

The U.S. Department of State and U.S. Department of Education created this initiative to further encourage international education programs. It was inaugurated by President Bill Clinton in 2000, IEW celebrates the importance and benefits of international education in the U.S. 

IEW’s mission is particularly relevant in 2020, which has been rocked by global health concerns and travel restrictions as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Now more than ever, we should come together and celebrate the importance of international education week.
