NAFSA Diversity Programs

In December 2015, the NAFSA Board of Directors passed a Diversity and Inclusion Statement to guide its work and the work of NAFSA leadership groups. Diversity remains a strategic priority for the association, both in terms of the composition of its membership as well as its focus on diversity on campus. Below are some current NAFSA diversity-related initiatives.

NAFSA Rise Fellowship

NAFSA honors the richness of human diversity and the essential power of discussion and collaboration across geographic and other boundaries, and is proud to relaunch its flagship diversity, equity and inclusion program: the NAFSA RISE (Representation, Inclusion, Support and Empowerment) Fellowship

Global Dialogue Fellowship Program

NAFSA’s Global Dialogue Fellowship Program seeks to assist university leaders in several sub-Saharan African countries to help increase their institution’s international education capacity and bring their expertise to university leaders in the United States.
