International Education Week

2018 International Education Week: November 12-16, 2018

International Education Week, a joint initiative led by the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education, is celebrated across the nation November 12-16. IEW provides an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and acknowledge the importance of having international students and scholars on our campuses.

In 2017, during IEW Florida State University was honored for its comprehensive efforts to internationalize the campus. FSU is one of four institutions to win the 2017 Senator Paul Simon Award for Internationalization, awarded by NAFSA: Association of International Educators. President Thrasher traveled to Washington D.C. to accept the award on behalf of FSU. He also participated in NAFSA's annual presidential panel for Paul Simon award winners where he discussed FSU's accomplishments leading up to this award and its ongoing commitment to internationalization. 

“FSU has a rich history of supporting internationalization and cultural diversity,” said President John Thrasher. “Ensuring that our students have the skills, competencies and global awareness needed for success in the 21st century has long been one of our top priorities.”

This year, FSU has planned a schedule of enriching events to celebrate IEW and explore other cultures and global issues.
