Event description

Description

What lasting impact do international exchanges have on communities, our country, and our world? How do we demonstrate that impact to elected officials?

International exchange programs, such as the Fulbright Program and the International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP), serve as effective tools of public diplomacy. Please join Dr. Allan Goodman, President and CEO, Institute of International Education, and Dr. Fanta Aw, Vice President of Campus Life and Inclusive Excellence who served as the board President, NAFSA – Association of International Educators, as they focus on how these and other exchanges have shaped global competence. They will also discuss the most compelling ways to advocate for these excellent examples of soft power. Experienced Congressional staffers Lynne Weil and Blake Souter will respond offering perspectives from the Hill. After a Q&A session, interact with representatives from cosponsoring organizations for a networking reception. Light refreshments will be provided. Please RSVP before February 21st.
