International Education Week 2017
Initiated in 2000 by the US Department of State and the Department of Education, International Education Week (IEW) emphasizes the importance of increasing knowledge and awareness of the world's cultures, peoples and languages, and affirms the critical role the international education plays at Boston College.
Celebrated from November 13 to 17, the theme for Boston College’s 2017 IEW is "Being a Changemaker: The Heights and Beyond". This topic gives Boston College's campus an opportunity to consider who we are, where we are going, and how we might make a positive difference at BC, in our local communities, at a national level, and in the world. A special focus will be given to the work of BC alumni and other notable leaders who have found ways of bringing about meaningful change in a variety of settings.
Check out the great events below and join in the internationalization of Boston College! Maps and directions to the locations listed below can be found on the Boston College website.
IEW 2017 is a collaborative effort organized by a wide array of departments and offices at Boston College, under the direction of the Office of International Students and Scholars and the Office of International Programs.
