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 an effort 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. Accommodation requests related to a disability should be made one week in advance by contacting 541-737-6457.
