Cross-Training ISSS Teams and Building Resilience

NAFSA Peer to Peer Perspectives Logo

Join four ISSS directors for a live panel about cross-training ISSS staff. The panelists represent a diversity of institutional types and office configurations. They will examine a variety of scenarios such as providing backup during staff turnover and extended leaves, creating opportunities for professional development, justifying costs associated with cross-training, and developing more holistic advising. The content is relevant to international student and scholar services professionals from beginner level to advanced.  

NAFSA Peer-to-Peer Perspectives facilitate an online dialogue between international education professionals. Participants come prepared to listen, learn, and share with their peers.
