The University of San Francisco: International Student and Scholar Services

International Education Week: November 14–21


International Education Week is a national celebration of education exchange. Last year's International Education Week took place between Friday, November 15 - Friday, November 22. We hope the events held during that week helped to stimulate deeper cultural understanding in our own community and foster an inclusive worldview.

As part of the IEW celebration, there was a chance for all students, staff and faculty to submit international photos for the IEW Photo Contest.  The photos need to be of a place that is not your home country.  During IEW the USF community will be able to vote on the photos and the winners will be announced at the end of the week.  Here are the photos that were submitted for IEW 2013:
