International Education Week speaks to the mission of Virginia International University. Since 1998, VIU has been a destination university for students from across the globe seeking to study in the USA. We embrace diversity in our staff, students, programs, activities, and graduate outcomes. This week originates as a joint initiative between the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Department of Education to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study in the USA and exchange experiences. November 12th through the 16th is when International Education Week is officially celebrated this year. Education is power and we are excited to recognize this week that empowers students to “Think Globally.” Students and guests are encouraged to take photos next to their country’s flag or among our “Flags of the World” that line our campus.
