International Education Week is an opportunity to celebrate the mutual benefits of education and exchange worldwide. 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 India and other countries to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States.
