A panel of IEM and ISS professionals from different institution types examine communication strategies for engaging with incoming students. Panelists will share their experiences with different social media platforms and messaging apps to build community and guide students from arrival through orientation. Questions will be addressed, as time allows, at the end of the presentation. The content is relevant to international student and scholar services and international enrollment management.

NAFSA Peer-to-Peer Perspectives facilitate an online dialogue between international education professionals. Participants should come prepared to listen, learn, and share with their peers.
