NAFSA released this statement today:


NAFSA congratulates President Obama on the occasion of his being named this year’s recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. As the President has said, this honor is not just a recognition of him, but even more a recognition of American leadership "on behalf of aspirations held by people in all nations." In our statement, Renewing America's Global Leadership, released earlier this year, we associate ourselves with this approach. We believe now is the time for America to re-engage the world and reaffirm our commitment to extending a hand of friendship and understanding to the global community. On this occasion of hope for the future of peace in the world, we renew our commitment to supporting constructive global engagement by the United States and to working collaboratively with other countries to meet our shared challenges and opportunities.
