Please join us in celebrating International Education Week. This joint initiative between the United States Department of State and United States Department of Education is meant 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.

For a complete list of all events, check the Office of International Educations website.

All events are free and open to the community, unless otherwise noted.

Open Access is “the free, immediate, online availability of research articles combined with the rights to use these articles fully in the digital environment.” International Open Access Week, now in its 10th year, is an opportunity to take action in making openness the default for research to turn discoveries into better lives.

This year’s theme is “Open for Whom? Equity in Open Knowledge.” In observance of Open Access Month, join us for a presentation by IUP faculty.
