Happy International Education Week!
International Education Week (IEW), was founded in 2000 as a shared initiative between the U.S. Department of State and the Department of Education in response to the UN Millennium Development Goals. Held each year during the third week of November, IEW aims to increase international understanding through educational exchange and attract future leaders from around the globe to study and learn abroad. Today, the initiative is celebrated in communities and educational institutions throughout the U.S. and in more than 100 countries worldwide!
Please join the efforts of the Center for Global Education and every office on our campus that encourages international learning in celebrating this

The Center for Global Education (CGE) serves not only as the “hub” for study aboard and international students, but also provides opportunities to support and learn through events on campus.
Worldfest is a longstanding Wheaton tradition that helps to bring cultural events to the wider campus community and is an important means of achieving global learning goals through cross-cultural programming.
Special events are sponsored annually by the CGE to give the entire Wheaton community a chance to learn from each other through various international or cultural experiences. The Eye on the World photo contest and exhibit give Wheaton students a chance to display their experiences, as seen through their lens, while providing the campus the community to “travel” through their amazing photographs.
The Annual International Women’s Day celebration gives us pause to reflect on the accomplishments of women across the globe, whose motivation and actions often are directly connected to experiences at Wheaton.
Through these events, we hope to continue to inspire and cultivate intercultural awareness and understanding throughout our campus and beyond.
