Ohio Dominican University is proud to participate in International Education Week (IEW) each year in November. Throughout the week, we celebrate the global diversity present on our campus, promote study abroad opportunities, and engage with cultural organizations throughout Central Ohio. International Education Week at ODU is co-hosted by the International Office and the World Student Club. All student organizations and departments are welcome to host and participate in IEW events.

What is IEW?

“International Education Week (IEW), is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international 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 abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences.” Learn more at https://iew.state.gov/.
