At a time when international education is more important than ever, The History of NAFSA provides a timely and insightful perspective on internationalization and campus impact.

Whether you're an educator, higher education professional, or someone interested in the history and future of international education, The History of NAFSA is a must-read publication.

Drawing on extensive research and interviews with key figures in the organization, Mark Toner chronicles NAFSA's evolution from a small group of international education pioneers to a thriving professional association with more than 10,000 members. He explores the challenges and triumphs of NAFSA’s growth, from its role in establishing the Fulbright program to its advocacy for international students and scholars in the wake of September 11, 2001, and the COVID-19 pandemic.
