Iowa International Education Conference

Date: Wednesday, April 26, 2017
Location: Kirkwood Community College, Cedar Rapids, Iowa
Time: 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Call for Proposals is Open!  

The 5th Annual Iowa NAFSA International Education Conference will be a one day event. It is 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) and students 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.
