This year marks the 15th annual celebration of International Education Week (IEW), our worldwide recognition of the benefits of international education and exchange.  Throughout this week, the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education jointly encourage educational institutions, local governments, community organizations, embassies, individuals, and private organizations to celebrate IEW.

Since 1972, the U.S. Department of State has funded the Open Doors survey and resulting annual report.  As the primary source of critical data on international student mobility, Open Doors drives the strategies of thousands of U.S. colleges and universities seeking to attract international students to their campuses, as well as various foreign governments and scholarship agencies who realize the importance of educating students in the United States.  The Open Doors report also presents data on U.S. students studying abroad; IEW is an opportunity for us to underscore the importance of U.S. students studying internationally to acquire language skills, as well as the regional and global perspectives necessary to succeed in the 21st century.

Below are some highlights from the Open Doors Report to kick-off #IEW2014:
