International Education Week

International Education Week (IEW) is a national celebration of education exchange. Join us to stimulate deeper cultural understanding in our own community and foster an inclusive worldview. The theme of IEW 2022 is #ForwardTogether and our goal is to highlight the resiliency of our community and to encourage everyone to come together after being physically apart for the past two years. Our hope is that this week offers a space to make meaningful connections with each other and highlights the diversity that strengthens our USF community.
