The 4th Annual Iowa International Education Conference

Date: Friday, April 22, 2016
Location: Kirkwood Community College, Cedar Rapids, Iowa
Time: 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

The cost of the conference is $20 for professionals and free for students.

Please join us for the 4th Annual Iowa NAFSA International Education Conference. This will be a one day event from 9:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m. This conference will be similar to a regional NAFSA conference in that we will have people representing all facets of international education in attendance including admissions/enrollment management, study abroad, international student services, and teaching/learning. This conference will be unique in that it will be specifically for Iowa, and representatives from any school (NAFSA members or non-NAFSA members) are welcome. We are hoping this event will not only bring in large schools, but also smaller Iowa colleges and universities, as well as community college representatives.
