FSU Celebrates International Education Week
November 13-17

International Education Week, a joint initiative led by the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education, is celebrated across the nation November 13-17. IEW provides an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and acknowledge the importance of having international students and scholars on our campuses.

This year during IEW, Florida State University is being honored for its comprehensive efforts to internationalize the campus. FSU is one of four institutions to win the 2017 Senator Paul Simon Award for Internationalization, awarded by NAFSA: Association of International Educators. President Thrasher will travel to Washington D.C. to accept the award on behalf of FSU. He will also participate in NAFSA's annual presidential panel for Paul Simon award winners where he will discuss FSU's accomplishments leading up to this award and its ongoing commitment to internationalization. 

“FSU has a rich history of supporting internationalization and cultural diversity,” said President John Thrasher. “Ensuring that our students have the skills, competencies and global awareness needed for success in the 21st century has long been one of our top priorities.”

This year, FSU has planned a schedule of enriching events to celebrate IEW and explore other cultures and global issues.
