  • For 20 years, WIEC has led the conversation about international programs and student recruitment



    Thousands of colleges, universities, embassies, U.S. government departments and international organizations have participated in the Washington International Education Conferences over the years. Our attendees are united in their belief in the importance of exchanging objective information, sharing useful tactics, and engaging others’ perspectives.


    Colleges and universities have benefited from hearing the latest information about programs that sponsor or offer scholarships for international students to study in the United States and new techniques and technologies to reach prospective international students. Similarly, embassy officials from key sending territories have learned about new programs offered at American colleges and universities as well as visa and immigration policy updates.


    In the spirit of collaboration, sharing of information, and professional development for international educators, WIEC is proud to offer free access to 82 presentations representing some of the highlights of our conference since 2011.
