Rebuilding and Restoring International Education Leadership
The Biden-Harris administration takes over at an unprecedented moment in U.S. history when rebuilding and restoring U.S. global leadership and economic strength is critical. This will require reaffirming a dedication to international education. NAFSA stands ready to work with the Biden-Harris administration to advance key policy priorities that will enable the U.S. to "build back better."
Impact of COVID-19
NAFSA urges Congress to provide critical financial resources, oversight, and policy changes in order to revive and restore international student enrollment and study abroad programs at U.S. colleges and universities impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Dream Act
NAFSA supports the Dream Act and urges Members of Congress to call for a vote on a permanent legislative solution for Dreamers. A permanent legislative solution is the best way to ensure Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients are protected.
