International Education Week 2022

Brought to you by The Office of International Programs, International Education Week 2022 will be celebrated November 3-18 and will provide an opportunity to recognize, advance, and elevate international awareness across our campus through a variety of virtual events.

International Education Week is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn and exchange experiences. International Education Week at K-State presents opportunities to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide.

“This week provides a great opportunity for our university community to learn, absorb and support the international initiatives that make our campus a rich and diverse global arena,” said Grant Chapman, associate provost for international programs. “We hope that all will take advantage and participate.”
