ISAO Presents International Education Week

International Education Week (IEW) was first initiated in 2000 by the U.S. Departments of State and Education and is now celebrated in more than 100 countries.

IEW is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This annual initiative aims to promote international understanding and build support for international education exchange by encouraging the development of programs that prepare Americans to live and work in a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study in the U.S.
