The annual Spring Immigration Workshop (SIW) is organized by the KC-ISSS Representative and the Government Regulations Advisory Committee (GRAC) of NAFSA: Association of International Educators, Region XI. All session presenters are seasoned immigration advising professionals from institutions around New England.


The SIW has sessions for those just entering the field of immigration advising as well as those who have been in the field for many years. There is a strong emphasis on immigration as it affects students and scholars in institutions of higher education.
