Diversity and Inclusion Highlighted at NAFSA 2016
Ten thousand international educators from around the world recently converged at the Colorado Convention Center for the spring NAFSA 2016 Association of International Educators conference, the largest annual event of its kind. The goal? To sharpen focus on best practices, emerging trends, and new programs designed to prepare tomorrow’s generation of globally competent citizens and professionals. At the top of the list was an interest in how to maximize educational approaches in increasingly diverse classrooms of first-generation college students, minority populations, and international students. CU Denver hosted more than 500 conference guests to its campus for colloquia, workshop sessions, campus tours, and receptions. A special session hosted by the University of Colorado Denver’s Office of International Affairs and Office of Diversity and Inclusion explored “Inclusion and Impact: Collaboration Between U.S. Diversity and International Offices”.
