W&M a staunch supporter of International Education Week

International Education Week (IEW), which commences Friday, Nov. 11, is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of State, designed to help "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."

The College of William & Mary joins institutions and organizations across the country, and embassies all over the world, in participating in this annual event.

In recognition of the ever-increasing importance of international education, departments around campus have teamed up to offer a series of programs to our community. We encourage you to join us.
