International Education Week
October 22nd - October 29th, 2013
This fall, Wellesley College will celebrate its inaugural International Education Week (IEW).
IEW was conceived as a joint initiative between the US departments of State and Education, and is now celebrated annually in more than 100 countries worldwide.
As an institution that prides itself on its commitment to diversity as well as its global consciousness, Wellesley is excited to use IEW as a platform for a yearly celebration of the benefits from international education and exchange. Every year, a significant number of Wellesley students embark on semester abroad programs and global internships, while others have the opportunity to participate in the Madeline Korbel Albright Institute for Global Affairs. Wellesley is also proud to represent over 300 international students from more than 60 countries, who bring with them a blend of interests, cultures, and experiences.
IEW is a wonderful opportunity to tap into these varied experiences, and elicit the ideas and enthusiasm that will spark thought-provoking conversations in the College community.
