International Educator

IE January 2020 cover

International Educator (IE) is NAFSA’s flagship magazine, published in monthly digital issues. IE maintains the highest standards of intellectual quality and editorial excellence to readers. In tandem with NAFSA’s values, IE publishes articles with the belief that international education advances learning and scholarship, builds understanding and respect among different peoples, and enhances constructive leadership in the global community.

The magazine publishes feature articles, columns tailored to NAFSA’s different knowledge communities, interviews with leaders in the field, member recommendations, and essays on new and major issues and trends in the field of international education.

IE welcomes ideas for potential articles, opinion essays, and interview subjects from members and others in the field. Before submitting ideas, it is recommended that writers read through previous issues of IE to get a feel for what types of articles are typically published, in addition to what topics have been covered more recently.
