The U.S. Department of State's EducationUSA network invites representatives of accredited U.S. higher education institutions (HEIs) to participate in the EducationUSA Europe and Eurasia (EUR) Regional Forum in 2022. EducationUSA regional forums provide opportunities for representatives of U.S. colleges and universities to engage with EducationUSA staff and explore strategies for reaching overseas student audiences and ensuring the success of international students on U.S. campuses. EducationUSA regional forums also advance advisers' professional skills and knowledge about current trends in U.S. higher education, while offering valuable networking opportunities for all participants. Registrants will attend panels and skills workshops on a diverse range of topics led by U.S. government officials, U.S. higher education professionals, and EducationUSA overseas staff.
As a higher education registrant, you will meet with expert EducationUSA advisers from the region and have the opportunity to exchange information about student mobility trends and recruitment strategies in the EUR region for both undergraduate and graduate students. You will also have the opportunity to share your valuable institutional perspectives with advisers and offer insights into the internationalization efforts underway on your campus. Additional programming during the event will provide opportunities for U.S. higher education representatives to network with U.S. Embassy personnel and leading educators.
EducationUSA operates advising centers in the following countries within Europe and Eurasia. Advisers from many of these countries *may* participate in the Forum, depending on event capacity, public health regulations, and international travel restrictions.
