We are excited to sponsor this year’s NAFSA Online Conference entitled “Data Driven Strategies for Success.”

Colleges and universities must develop successful international student recruitment strategies to meet their growth, retention, and diversification goals. By developing data-driven strategies that utilize the most current research and data available when planning, advocating, and evaluating an international student recruitment plan, higher education institutions can not only meet, but exceed these challenges.

From identifying emerging markets and mobility trends to developing a recruitment strategy and securing the necessary resources for implementation, Data-Driven Strategies for Success will provide the insights, recommendations, and resources to increase your enrollment of international students.

Don't miss this amazing opportunity to learn, engage, and network! Set a course for success and be a part of this innovative interactive conference. No travel is necessary to participate.

As a partner, we are offering a special discount price, 20% below all published rates, availabile here.

The World Cup in Brazil has captured the interest of more people in the U.S. than ever before (looking at TV and online viewing). As with the 2012 London Olympic Games, high profile sports like this also gain positive attention outside the U.S. Although we would like the U.S. and world press to recognize the important work we do in international higher education and the changes we support for U.S. students who study abroad and international students who study in the U.S., media attention only seems to arise when a U.S. student is in crisis abroad (U.S. study abroad student Amanda Knox convicted of murdering her British roommate in Italy) or an international student is in crisis in the U.S. (international student death during the 2013 Boston Marathon, international student shot near university in Los Angeles, etc.).
