Member Interest Groups (MIGs)


What do you get when you bring together an informal group of members and nonmembers united by common interests, professional and personal experience and identities, and types of institutions? You get a Member Interest Group—one of the most personal and welcoming ways to find your place in NAFSA.

Member interest groups are:

  • One of the most personal and welcoming ways to find your place in NAFSA
  • Open to all international educators interested in connecting and networking with colleagues with similar interests
  • Communities that promote the sharing of information and experience among their members and with professional colleagues

Looking to engage with others at the same type of institution?

Looking to connect with others sharing an interest in a country or region?

Looking to share with others with similar professional or personal interests?
