November 12th starts "International Education Week", #IEW2012. Check out this video where University students currently studying abroad in our own Western Hemisphere talk about how the experience has changed them for the better.
In March 2011, President Barack Obama launched "100,000 Strong in the Americas," #100kstrong, an initiative to increase international study in the Western Hemisphere. The purpose of 100,000 Strong is to foster region-wide prosperity through greater international exchange of students, who are our future leaders and innovators. Increasing understanding in the Western Hemisphere and building closer people-to-people ties will help the State Department work together with the people of the Western Hemisphere to address common challenges including citizen security, economic opportunity, social inclusion, and environmental sustainability.
