Arlington, VA (Nov. 11, 2016) — The National Association for College Admission Counseling, along with the more than 4,450 high schools and universities that it serves, is proud to recognize International Education Week (IEW).

The principles of openness, non-discrimination, and tolerance are fundamental to both democratic and educational practice — values that take on a particular importance during IEW, a celebration of international education running Nov. 14-18.

Student mobility, in particular, is crucial to encouraging the many cultural, academic, diplomatic, and economic benefits of cross-border education. The association remains firmly opposed to policies or actions that discriminate on the basis of national origin or religion, or that otherwise infringe on fundamental human rights. NACAC recognizes IEW 2016 as an opportunity to celebrate the diversity of all cultures and the role that international student exchange plays in enriching experiences for all.

The National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC), founded in 1937, is an organization of more than 15,000 professionals from around the world dedicated to serving students as they make choices about pursuing postsecondary education. NACAC is committed to maintaining high standards that foster ethical and social responsibility among those involved in the transition process, as outlined in the NACAC Statement of Principles of Good Practice (SPGP).
