International Education Week

IEW 2020 banner
International Education Week (IEW) is an annual celebration of the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide, taking place each November.  This joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education is part of the national efforts to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences.

At Saint Joseph's University, we host a number of  events each year to celebrate International Education Week and encourage more of our students, faculty and staff to become global citizens!  


Thank you for a wonderful International Education Week, 2020!! 

Below you'll find our Cultural Cookbook as well as a virtual display from the International Photo & Video Contest. We hope you enjoy, and we look forward to more opportunities to celebrate international education & exchange at SJU in the future!
