International Education Week 2020

West Chester University (WCU) joins various colleges, universities, embassies, and community organizations around the world to celebrate International Educational Week (IEW).  This year, International Education Week at WCU will be commemorated from October 26-30, 2020.  
International education advances cultural understanding and the protection of cultural heritage while also preparing individuals to work in a global society. This joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education is part of our efforts to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences.
