International Education Week

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 part of an effort to prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States.

Adelphi University sponsors more than a dozen events throughout International Education Week and encourages all students, faculty, and staff to attend and participate in international education and exchange.
