A nationwide celebration that higher education institutions across the US participate in, International Education Week (IEW) takes place every November. IEW at NYU gives you an opportunity to revisit the familiar or discover the unknown. Journey across the world with nothing more than curiosity and an open mind.

NYU International Education Week invites you to celebrate the global and international experiences unique to NYU. Through performances, lectures, films, displays, and workshops highlighting opportunities both in the US and abroad, IEW helps to further increase our community's cross-cultural awareness, curiosity, and knowledge. This year it takes place November 13-17.
