International Education Week

Celebrated from November 13 to 17, the theme for Boston College’s 2017 IEW is "Being a Changemaker: The Heights and Beyond". This topic gives Boston College's campus an opportunity to consider who we are, where we are going, and how we might make a positive difference at BC, in our local communities, at a national level, and in the world. A special focus will be given to the work of BC alumni and other notable leaders who have found ways of bringing about meaningful change in a variety of settings.
