In 2017 NAFSA welcomed a new cohort of the Global Dialogue Fellowship Program, a program for higher education internationalization leaders. The five Global Dialogue Fellows from Africa are receiving support to attend two NAFSA annual conferences, providing them with opportunities to meet and collaborate with university leaders in the United States and from around the world. In addition, each fellow is partnered with a Global Dialogue Partner, a U.S.-based international education leader, for ongoing discussion and sharing of expertise, information, and resources.
Through this program, NAFSA is committed to creating opportunities for dialogue and engagement on a global level to support the fellows in designing new and deeper international programs for students, scholars, faculty, and exchange visitors at their home institutions.
