NAFSA Annual Conference & Expo

December 15, 2014

NAFSA: Association of International Educators is encouraging submissions for the poster fair category "Increasing Diversity Outreach and Support for Education Abroad" at the 2015 NAFSA Annual Conference in Boston, MA.

The deadline to submit proposals for the 2015 Conference Poster Fair is Monday, December 15th. NAFSA hopes to see proposals highlighting innovative programs, support services, and resources to assist college and universities interested in expanding and supporting participation among underrepresented and non-traditional study abroad and international student populations, focusing on:

  • Sexual orientation & gender identity
  • First generation college students
  • Students with disabilities
  • Race and ethnicity
  • Socioeconomic status
  • Under-represented academic disciplines (e.g. STEM fields)

You can learn more about the poster proposal process and all of the poster fair themes on the NAFSA website, here.

The Poster Fair is an excellent opportunity for professionals and graduate students to outreach and network in the field.
