Celebrate International Education Week

November 12 - 15th, 2013


PSU’s Office of International Affairs (OIA) celebrates International Education Week (IEW) by hosting a series of events that encourage international education and exchange.  

IEW is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and that attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States.  Learn more about this initiative at U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.

We encourage PSU students, faculty and community members who are interested in participating and encouraging international education and exchange to attend as many events as they'd like and share the initiative with their friends, family, classmates, and colleagues.  

OIA, in collaboration with several other PSU departments and community members, are proud to celebrate international education and exchange.  Please see our event schedule below.
