HBCU’s Abroad will launch on November 17, 2014. This is the first day of International Education Week.
What is International Education Week?
International education week celebrates the diversity of voices that have studied abroad. It 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 in the United States. – See more at: http://eca.state.gov/programs-initiatives/international-education-week#sthash.G1mjreKN.dpuf
