International Education Week (IEW) 2013 is November 12–22. This year's theme is "International Education Takes You Places." AACC believes that international education is a quintessential element in the success of community college students and is an integral part of a quality higher education experience. U.S. community colleges play an important role in the global higher education community.

On Wednesday, November 13, 2013, AACC held its Annual IEW Staff Luncheon. Both UDC Community College (DC) and Howard Community College (MD) joined us in our office and each brought one of their students who had studied abroad to participate in an informative and highly educational discussion focused on the IEW 2013 theme: International Education Takes You Places. Special thanks to everyone.
