Refreshed in 2022, the NAFSA International Education Professional Competencies 2.0 advance the professionalization of the field and influence the development of the future international education workforce. As a reminder, the competencies should be viewed as a whole and not individually, as each competency necessarily supports the others. Throughout 2023, NAFSA will host four live sessions featuring conversations around interrelated subsets of the updated competencies. International educators at all career levels and across all sectors of the field are invited to join these conversations.
- Understand how the NAFSA International Education Professional Competencies 2.0 can be used in daily work
- Use the competencies for professional development, career advancement, and staff retention
- Learn how each competency is interconnected
Peer-to-Peer Perspectives are a NAFSA member benefit. Nonmembers may attend for a fee.
