e-Learning Seminar
Student Members

Join presenters Neal McCrillis of Columbus State University, and Dan Paracka of Kennesaw State University, as they share their successful strategies for engaging faculty, students, and community to strengthen their campus internationalization efforts. Drawing from their experience as winners of NAFSA’s Senator Paul Simon Award for Campus Internationalization, McCrillis, and Paracka provide real-world examples of how you can build upon existing programs and initiatives to broaden the global perspective of your campus.

Designed for senior international officers and others involved in developing campuswide international activities, this webinar shows you how to build connections on campus and gain support for internationalization through less-involved units. The webinar presenters also provide valuable information on how to create a global certificate program, and how to engage international students with your campus and the local community.

Learning Outcomes

  • Offer strategies to expand existing global initiatives on your campus
  • Identify potential campus and local community partners
  • Improve engagement in existing partnerships between the campus and the community
