Please join the Office of International Education as they host International Education Week at IUP from October 12 through October 21, 2020.
IEW is a joint initiative between the United States Department of State and the United States Department of Education to promote cross-cultural awareness, prepare students for a global environment, and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn,
and exchange experiences in the United States.
Funding is provided by the OIE and IUP Student Co-Operative Association. All events are free and open to the community, unless otherwise noted.
