Each year in the third week of November, Oregon State University celebrates International Education Week (IEW). This year, as we are re-engaging on campus after working and learning remotely and building on our efforts to advance our Internationalization and Global Engagement Strategy, IEW provides a welcome opportunity to celebrate our global connections and achievements. 

The events next week, from November 15th through 19th, are designed to engage all members of our community, including students, faculty, and staff, with backgrounds from Oregon, around the US, and from other parts of the world. In particular, the International Education Week Kickoff Celebration is a time for us to come together in recognition that we are all global citizens who share our diverse backgrounds and cultures with each other every day.
