nafsaSkyline College hosted the NAFSA Region XII Northern District Conference on March 23rd. It was a great opportunity for administrators in the field of international education to hear from experienced professionals and representatives from different U.S. government agencies.

NAFSA, the Association of International Educators, promotes the professional development of U.S. college and university officials in charge of helping domestic and international students. The conference had many interesting sessions, such as the Seasoned NAFSAns Roundtable, Updates from Customs and Border Protection, Intercultural Understanding, and Grey Areas in International Student Advising.

Skyline College received special thanks from the NAFSA team for hosting the event. Eva Hu the Conference Co-Chair stated in a thank you email “We have really enjoyed hosting this event at your campus these last two years. Your team, Linda Bertellotti (Facilities and Events) and Roger Marcelo (Multimedia Services), were spectacular throughout the planning.”
