WELCOME FROM NAFSA’S PRESIDENT AND
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR & CEO
Dear Colleagues,
It is a great pleasure to welcome you to NAFSA’s 65th Annual Conference & Expo, the premier event
where the field of international education comes together. The week ahead offers numerous
opportunities to develop the knowledge, skills, and strategies you need to better serve your
institution, advance your career, and meet colleagues from around the world. The iconic St. Louis arch
serves as the perfect backdrop to inspire us all to reach new heights in international education.
We’re pleased to showcase plenary speakers whose perspectives will encourage each of us to reflect
on the conference theme, Ideals and Impact in International Education. We are privileged to welcome
Kofi Annan, former secretary-general of the United Nations, to give the address at our opening
plenary, and Oscar Arias, Nobel laureate and former president of Costa Rica, to end the week.
We know how important networking is to you. We make it easy and enjoyable to meet other
colleagues and to feel connected with this unique conference community. Join us at the Wednesday
and Thursday plenaries to hear the inspiring stories of Alfredo Quiñones-Hinojosa, MD, and Rye
Barcott. Open meetings facilitate networking around specific themes and the Friday International
Plenary and Networking Luncheon, Member Interest Group luncheons, and special events including
the opening and closing celebrations and knowledge community networking receptions all help you
connect. Don't miss the Annual Business Meeting featuring winners of our International Education
Video Celebration contest, and a wonderful cultural event at St. Louis’s imaginative City Museum.
The conference would not be a reality without the creativity and unwavering commitment of many. We
express our deep appreciation and gratitude for the enormous contributions of our presenters,
exhibitors, sponsors, Annual Conference Committee, and Local Arrangements Team.
Thank you for joining us at the 2013 Annual Conference & Expo. As you participate in thought-provoking
sessions and seminars, connect with new and familiar colleagues, and build partnerships in our worldclass Expo Hall, we encourage you to explore the ideals and impact of international education.
With warmest regards,

The key to a successful conference is putting yourself in smaller, more intimate groups
where you can truly connect and learn from your peers. Some of the best
opportunities to do this are:
Open Meetings–These informal meetings allow you to connect with peers
interested in the same topic or in similar situations. The group decides where the
conversation will go.
Poster Fairs–These presentations allow you to interact with presenters
one-on-one.
Member Interest Group Meetings (MIGs)–With more than 30 different MIGs,
attending a MIG meeting is a wonderful way to connect with a much smaller group
around professional and personal interests.
In addition to being great learning opportunities, each of these offerings is sure to grow
your professional network.
JOIN THE CONVERSATION. GET CONNECTED!

Rethinking Curricular Practical Training
(CPT)
Room 130
Confused about CPT? Ready to reexamine
your institution’s approach? Are you
grounded in the regulations or just doing
what’s always been done? Is credit really
required? Does a faculty member need to
sign off on it? What does “integral part of
an established curriculum” mean? This
session explores CPT regulations and
developing a CPT policy to fit your
institution.

Region VI Highlight: A Toolkit for
Returnee Student Services in Education
Abroad
Room 231
As international educators, it can be
difficult to find creative ways (and time!) to
incorporate returnee student services into
our institutional programming. This
interactive session and discussion offers a
toolkit of activities targeted toward
returned students to help facilitate their
continued personal and professional
growth.

Unleashing the Power of Data to Drive
International Enrollment Strategy
Room 275
As institutions seek to expand
international enrollment management,
data can be an ally. Yet many offices lack
coherent data strategies. In this session,
practitioners discuss leveraging data
sources such as market intelligence, digital
media, and performance management
metrics to drive an informed and costeffective international enrollment
management strategy.
