International Education Week – November 14th – 18th

International Education Week 2016 – November 14-18

Come celebrate with USC’s International Student Services during International Education Week.  International Education Week (IEW) is a joint initiative between the US State Department and the US Department of Education that focuses on preparing Americans for a global environment. Businesses, universities, embassies, and other organizations around the country participate by promoting programs that educate Americans about the international environment and encourage multicultural learning.

The University of South Carolina had participated in IEW since 2004 in order to recognize its global community and promote further internationalization among faculty, staff, and students. There will be a wide variety of events including an international bazaar, a meet and greet with international students, and the third annual IEW World Cup.

Because business is becoming increasingly globalized, it is important for business students to expose themselves to other cultures and learn more about the international environment. The Darla Moore School of Business specifically requires students to take nine credits of globally focused classes. As class registration is the same week as IEW, students can use these events to help them to decide which globally focused classes they would like to take.

If you’re interested in exploring study abroad opportunities, traveling around the world and learning about other cultures, immerse yourself in everything global. 

We’ve pulled together films and books (most available online) to help you start your journey.  – Visit TCL’s guide at “Celebrating International Education Week.”
