This year’s NAFSA conference and Expo is taking place in downtown St. Louis from May 24 – May 29 at America’s Center Convention Complex. This conference theme will be "Innovate, Influence, Impact,” and will feature innovations in international education and highlight the role that the field plays in creating welcoming communities, supporting human rights, and advocating for social justice.

For more information on the proposal process, or to discuss collaborative session ideas, contact Kim McGrath, director of WINS (Webster International Network Schools). A small cohort is planning Webster University’s participation in this year’s conference, with details to follow regarding conference events and other ways to get involved.
