INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION WEEK 2014
What is International Education?
International education involves the effort to educate people about the global nature of the environment in which they live, study and work. International education at a university campus is illustrated by departments, offices, and organizations with international emphases like the Center for International Studies, the International Office, the Study Abroad office, the Texas State Intensive English program (TSIE), and the International Student Association.
International education takes place in the curriculum, research, study abroad, and instruction in intensive English to students whose first language is not English. There are also many offices within the University that have international components such as international admissions, the hiring of international faculty, and services and activities related to international students and scholars, including Fulbright Scholars.
International Education Week (IEW) at Texas State
IEW, a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education, 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. The dates of IEW are November 17th-21st but a variety of celebrations and presentations will be held throughout the entire month of November. Faculty, staff and student organizations are welcome to submit proposals for events related to international education by November 7th. If approved, your event will be added to the IEW Schedule of Events.
