International Education Week (IEW) is a special week sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education and State Department when schools and programs around the U.S. promote and celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange around the world. Marymount’s Center for Global Education and International Student Services team up with partners around campus to promote a global perspective and teach the community about the impact international exchange has. This year, we will be celebrating IEW early during November 9-13 with a preview week on Instagram from November 3-6th.
The theme for IEW 2020 is Creating a Sustainable, Global Future. The week’s events will center around the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals adopted in 2015 which call to protect the planet, ensure peace and prosperity, and to end poverty. They are based on the belief that the outcome of one area affects the others and that growth and development in social, economic, and environmental sustainability is key to achieve a truly prosperous future. The goals are listed in the image below:
