International Education Week (IEW), is an initiative established by the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education which gives us the opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. During this week at Cornell, we celebrate and discuss topics related to our international students on campus as well as our students who study abroad.

International students gather on the Orange Carpet

Typically held around the second week of November, the week consists of activities, events, workshops, and discussions that give international students a space to share their heritage with the rest of the community as well as give a voice and space to students who have studied abroad or who desire to study outside of the United States.
