Member Interest Groups (MIGs)


NAFSA’s Member Interest Groups (MIGs) are a unique resource for NAFSA members and non-members. These 30+ groups, founded by members, value diversity and inclusion. Each MIG fosters information sharing and interest-specific resources. MIGs provide a personal and welcoming way to find your place at NAFSA and within the field of international education. Connect by country or region. Engage with similar special interests that are connected to a professional or personal identity. Share within like institutions.

Member Interest Groups are:

  • Communities that support NAFSA members and non-members in their careers, studies, and research
  • Connections to a network of colleagues with similar interests
  • Resources that foster information sharing and professional and educational support
