International Education Week at Beloit
It’s only fitting that we celebrate International Education Week (IEW) Nov. 14-18 with great enthusiasm. After all, we have an alumnus to thank for the federal initiative that started in 2002.
David Levin’73 proposed the IEW through the U.S. State Department and Department of Education to celebrate off-campus study and the presence of international students. David was recognized in 2019 for his efforts by NAFSA, the largest international education organization in the world.
IEW promotes programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences.
Beloit College’s commitment to international learning is woven into academics, activities, and everyday life on campus. Beloiters study international issues, learn languages, travel abroad, and show commitment to being part of a global community. We also welcome students from across the world who enrich our campus with ideas, perspectives, and culture.
International education is a powerful driver of the Beloit College student experience and helps position students well for their future careers and personal and civic lives — and that makes the world a better place to live.
