From 2014-2017, the NAFSA Diversity Impact Program (DIP) supported over 110 International Education professionals from tribal colleges and universities; historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs); Hispanic-serving institutions (HSIs); and community colleges. NAFSA is proud to continue its commitment to Diversity and to this end, in September 2019, relaunched its flagship Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Program: NAFSA RISE Fellowship.
NAFSA believes diversity enriches individuals, organizations, and society. Toward this end, the NAFSA Diversity Impact Program supports professionals from underrepresented institutions by helping them expand capacity, grow study abroad, and increase student global competencies. The goal is to build diversity within international education, both in the development of professionals and by assisting these institutions in their efforts promoting internationalization on their campuses.
The NAFSA Diversity Impact Program provides international education professionals from tribal colleges and universities; historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs); Hispanic-serving institutions (HSIs); and community colleges and associates colleges, complimentary NAFSA membership, registration to the NAFSA Annual Conference & Expo, and yearlong mentoring and professional development opportunities.
