International Education Week (IEW) is a joint initiative organized by the U.S. Departments of State and Education and serves as “an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide… [and promotes] programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences.”  Each year, CU Boulder organizes programming to showcase and celebrate the extensive international connections here on campus, spearheaded by the Offices of Education Abroad and International Student & Scholar Services. IEW will take place virtually November 16th through 20th, 2020. 

The Offices of Education Abroad and International Student & Scholar Services will be hosting a World Showcase event in collaboration with the International Festival Committee, a student organization on campus, in order to promote intercultural awareness and understanding. This virtual event will take place Monday, November 16, 2020, 4:30 PM-5:30 PM. Check back to this webpage for additional IEW events. If you are interested in hosting an event, please reach out to Moriah Maron (, Education Abroad) or or Hannah Juliff (, International Student and Scholar Services).  

This year Education Abroad alumni and International Student & Scholar Services students are invited to submit photos that capture the theme of Perspective and Resilience: My International Experience. A number of the photos will then be displayed on social media. Students are encouraged to submit photos using this link. Photos submissions are due by November 12th, 2020 at 11:59 PM.
