NAFSA CEO Marlene Johnson said that “To say that I’m proud of the board for this statement is an understatement of significant proportion."
In an official statement released last week, NAFSA says that “We urge our nation’s leaders to advance study abroad and international learning; welcome international students and advance commonsense immigration solutions, and demonstrate our commitment to global engagement by continuing forward progress on Cuba and offering education and aid to refugees,”
International education can be used to strengthen relations with the foreign countries; can improve economies and cooperation with other nations.
The NAFSA opined that the next American President should welcome international students and champion the system of immigration.
It urged for eliminating the student’s requirement to prove that they are not going to stay in the United States, post completion of education.
