As we celebrate the 16th Annual International Education Week, a joint initiative of the US Department of State and Department of Education. As noted on the Department of State website, International Education Week is "an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide" and helps us to prepare for "a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States."
Given the recent and tragic events in Paris, the importance of initiatives such as International Education Week is underscored. At its core, International Education is about the building of bridges between people and cultures for mutual understanding, discussion, and dialogue.
CITY IMAGES hopes that all of you will be able to encourage each and every student to participate, and look forward to growing our International Education Week in the coming years and appreciate your continued support.
