A World of Learning Opportunities at OSU and Beyond
November 13-21, 2015

International Education Week (IEW) 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. Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs is part of our efforts to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States.

Oregon State University contributes by holding a variety of activities throughout the week. For detailed descriptions of all 25+ events and a list of sponsoring organizations, download our IEW Schedule of Events. All events are free unless indicated otherwise. Accommodations for disabilities may be made by calling 541.737.6407, preferably one week in advance.

The video to the right, with Vice Provost Susie Brubaker-Cole, speaks to how transformative international education can be.
