Advocacy Day

Interested in continuing your international education advocacy efforts beyond the elections? Consider attending NAFSA’s Advocacy Day in Washington D.C. March 18-19, 2019. This two-day event will provide training and strategies on how to speak with and educate your members of Congress about the positive impact international education has at the local and national levels. You will have the opportunity to influence new Congressional members and legislation that affects your profession, students and scholars. The skills you learn at Advocacy Day can be utilized yearround in your current role as an international educator. To register for Advocacy Day please visit NAFSA’s Advocacy Day page. Register by January 22, 2019 to take advantage of the early-bird rate!

Region IV is proud to offer travel grant opportunities to help with the costs of attending this event. Applications are due January 10, 2019.
