IEW_inverse_long

Be Part of International Education Week at Georgia Southern!

The Office of International Student Admissions and Programs (ISAP) encourages students, staff and faculty to celebrate International Education Week to honor the cultural richness and diversity of Georgia Southern.

International Education Week 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. 

As part of our International Education Week events and in celebration of the many cultures represented at Georgia Southern, we’re excited to join with the Hate Has No Home Here campaign. Stickers and 11″ X 17″ posters are available for pickup from our offices in Veazey and Gamble Halls the week of November 16! We encourage students, faculty, staff and departments to display these posters to show your support and appreciation for the cultural richness of Georgia Southern. Posters can be reserved at international@georgiasouthern.edu.
