Impact of Administration’s Regulatory Agenda on International Education

The Center for Global Engagement's Engage Your World Intercultural Dialogue Series presents this talk by Steve Springer, Director of Regulatory Practice Liaison for NAFSA: Association of International Educators. 

In this talk, Steve Springer will provide a description of key regulatory and policy changes implemented by the Trump administration and the impacts on international student programs. New restrictions, fees, and burdensome agency processes, along with rhetoric from the administration, suggest to many current and prospective international students that they are not welcome here. These new disincentives to study in the U.S. come just as other countries have implemented substantial programs to attract international students. All indications are that the U.S. is losing its place as the top destination for international students and we risk losing the economic, social and cultural value that international students bring to our campuses and communities.

Steve Springer is Director of Regulatory Practice Liaison for NAFSA: Association of International Educators and manages NAFSA's engagement with federal agencies concerning regulatory practice issues, among other duties. Prior to joining the NAFSA staff he worked as an immigration attorney, representing higher education institutions and their faculty, staff, and students, and worked in-house managing immigration services for several major research universities. He is active in the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) and served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Poland.

The talk will begin at 5pm. The Zoom invite will be sent 30 minutes prior to the event to registered participants from FSU.
