International Education Overview
9 a.m. - 10 a.m.
Based in the framework of the NAFSA: Association of International Educators, we will introduce participants to the various aspects of international education both in the U.S. and abroad.This includes unique considerations for our populations, cultural skills and frameworks which facilitate success in these areas, and the current state of the field. Areas discussed will include international enrollment management, international student and scholar advising, education abroad, and international advocacy. This session is best suited for non-international education professionals as it provides a broad overview rather than in-depth specifics of one particular area or another.
