What approach works best? What data should you collect? Who are your champions? In this peer-to-peer conversation, we'll tackle the essential questions that arise when advocating for yourself and your education abroad team, offering practical strategies to overcome obstacles and maintain momentum. Our expert education abroad panelists will delve into the intricacies of determining what to ask for and how to approach it, providing insights on readdressing requests over time and bolstering morale for continued advocacy efforts. Whether your requests advocate for more staff, additional departmental funding, or strategic leverage and your voice on a committee, this online conversation is for you.

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.
