International Education Week

Each year, International Education Week is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education is a part of 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. 

2021 International Education Week Theme: A World Without Border?:  The Prospects and Challenges of Global Citizenship.

This year's International Education Week will be observed at Coastal Carolina University from November 9 - 18, 2021, guides us to reflect, share, discuss, engage, and act on issues that engage our campus community to a purposeful consideration of the world around us and how local, regional, national, and global issues in almost all fields are interconnected. This activity is supportive of Goal 2.4 of the 2016-2021 Strategic Plan which calls for us to “Advance curricular and co-curricular learning opportunities that raise student and campus awareness of global citizenship and empower action in the broader community.”
