01 Aug NAFSA 2018 Annual Conference & Expo – Call for Proposals
Deadline for Submission: 7th August 2017
Join peers and experts at the largest gathering in the field of international education for the 2018 NAFSA Annual Conference & Expo, “Diverse Voices, Shared Commitment.” The conference will take place May 27-June 1, 2018, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and will feature outstanding educational and professional development opportunities and a world-class expo hall.
At the NAFSA 2018 Annual Conference & Expo, join us to explore the theme: Diverse Voices, Shared Commitment. Successful international engagement depends on navigating complexity by listening to multiple perspectives. It is one thing to study and/or appreciate the “other”, it is another to genuinely hear their voices – voices that we may not have heard before but are important to moving our field forward.
Valuing the power of diverse voices leads to more authentic collaboration and speaks to alternative narratives that challenge our old ideas and make us think about new solutions and opportunities. Diverse voices have the power to wake us up, perhaps make us uncomfortable, and ask the right questions. But multiple voices without a shared commitment is cacophony—it lacks the power of collaboration, mutual trust and a desire to meet challenges together.
The NAFSA Annual Conference is a unique forum of attendees from many professional and geographic perspectives and backgrounds. Despite differences, conference attendees share a very strong commitment to the core values of International Education — providing a welcoming and supportive environment for the success of generations of students and scholars.
