e-Institute Participant Testimonials


"Being able to tap into the incredible expertise of our knowledgeable and generous faculty while engaged in this thinking is an opportunity I’ll long appreciate."

"I started the e-Institute thinking that it would be a training course, but I soon saw that a new world had opened up. It's not just a course, but access to activities and connections that only NAFSA offers."

"Each aspect of the e-Institute has been designed to ensure that participants gain new skills, knowledge, and competencies that serve the comprehensive and strategic internationalization of their institution."

"I closed several of my own knowledge gaps and I applied the program resources directly to real day-to-day situations that my team and I were encountering."
