Each November, Michigan State University joins institutions across the country in celebrating International Education Week. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education, International Education Week was established "to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States."
MSU considers international education and engagement to be cornerstones of its institutional mission. It is our desire that the wide range of MSU International Education Week activities will
- foster a greater sense of global community on campus;
- encourage a greater awareness of other peoples, other countries, world affairs, and their influence on our lives, among the University's various constituencies;
- inform the MSU family and surrounding community of the various ways the university is engaged in international teaching, scholarship, and engagement; and
- inspire an even stronger commitment among students, faculty, and staff to becoming more globally educated.
We encourage your participation in the many events being organized for this year's MSU International Education Week. As the events are scheduled, they will be listed on the MSU International Education Week Calendar.
Background information on International Education Week is at the U.S. State Department and the Department of Education site.
