International Education Week (IEW) is a time of celebration for the NAFSA community. This special International Education Town Hall for IEW 2018 focused on the latest innovations, partnerships, and diversification initiatives from across the field.

NAFSA’s Vice President for Professional Development and Education Ravi Shankar highlighted and discussed specific examples, including those shared by participants. He was joined by his colleague Adam Goodman to offer insights on strategies to keep resilient as we face challenges in our daily work.

NAFSA's International Education Town Hall events are a series of online forums designed to bring together the international education community in a time of uncertainty and change. This town hall focuses on:

  • Innovation, partnerships, and diversity initiatives across the field;
  • Insights and strategies on resilience; and
  • Resources and model practices to respond to the changing environment.

NAFSA International Education Town Hall events are free and open to the extended international education community.
