NAFSA Government Connection events offer an online forum for NAFSA members and international educators to interact directly with federal agency officials about topics affecting their work; their international students and scholars; their outgoing study abroad students; and their institution.

Each online forum focuses on one agency and features an official from the agency along with NAFSA staff or NAFSA member leaders as presenters. Participants may submit questions and agenda items in advance of the event, or during the event if time allows.

Live events are free and open to all international education professionals. Recorded events indicated by the key icon below are accessible to members only. Learn more about becoming a member of NAFSA
