NAFSA 2020 Annual Conference & Expo

With concern for the health and safety of our attendees, the NAFSA board of directors decided to cancel the 2020 NAFSA Annual Conference & Expo scheduled to take place on May 24-29 in St. Louis, Missouri.

Register for the 2020 NAFSA eConnection, five days of online learning and collaboration for international educators worldwide in lieu of the NAFSA 2020 Annual Conference & Expo. Join us for discussions and sessions focused on the state of the field, career development, global viewpoints, and more. Advance registration is required, and registration is free for NAFSA members!
