International Education Town Hall

Join your NAFSA colleagues on October 13, from 2:00pm to 3:00pm for a discussion of DHS’ proposed rule that would eliminate duration of status for Fs and Js. We will review key elements of the proposal and potential issues, describe NAFSA’s response, hear about three schools’ response plans, and discuss how you might respond. We will highlight additional information and resources. We will also seek your input about possible implications for your institution and your plans to respond. The event is free of charge, but you must register.
