International Student Recruitment Survey

surveyWhether or not you’re planning to attend the NAFSA annual conference and our session, we encourage colleagues from regionally accredited US colleges and universities who are involved in international recruitment to share some information about their activities by completing a short 10-question survey.  The information will be shared on this blog and at the session without names and institutional affiliations.  It should take you about 5 minutes to complete.  Thank you!
