NAFSA IEW Campus Connection

This event is available for on-demand access through December 31, 2020. You may purchase access to all IEW Campus Connection programming through December 15, 2020.

Featuring: Richard Fontaine and Karin Fischer
Richard Fontaine is the CEO of the Center for a New American Security and was foreign policy advisor to Senator John McCain, and previously served at the State Department, the National Security Council, and on the staff of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Karin Fischer is a longtime higher-education journalist with a focus on international education, including American colleges’ activities overseas, the globalization of the college experience, and study abroad. 

Join us as we look at the results of the 2020 U.S. elections and discuss the impact it will have on international education, diplomacy and engagement with the world. Following the panel discussion, there will be a period of Q&A. In addition, NAFSA will be releasing the latest analysis and data from the International Student Economic Value Tool.

You Should Attend if You:

  • engage with your member of Congress;
  • want to learn more about policies that will impact the field of international higher education while encouraging an exchange of ideas around the world; and,
  • are interested in learning about NAFSA’s current and ongoing public policy priorities.

What You Will Gain From Participating is:

  • an insider’s sneak peek of what may come from government in the next four years; and, 
  • a preview of the policy priorities for the administration and the 117th U.S. Congress for which NAFSA will be advocating to create a more welcoming and globally engaged United States.
