As a member of the Chilean Network for the Dissemination of International Higher Education (Learn Chile), the Universidad de La Frontera again participates in the NAFSA Annual Conference and Expo, the must-attend event for international education.
The NAFSA 2019 Annual Conference & Expo, "Global Leadership, Learning, and Change", is taking place from May 26-31 in Washington, D.C., and the Universidad de La Frontera is one of the attendees, together with Learn Chile. It is the biggest Conference on international higher education in the world, with about 10 thousand attendees.
The International Affairs Office’s director, Dr. Berta Schnettler, appreciates this opportunity and confirms: “This is a promising and favorable opportunity for us in order to position our offer for undergraduate and graduate studies internationally. This is a place where many of the leading universities worldwide come together. And, at the same time, it is an opportunity to expand our links through strategies which we are part of, through Learn Chile.”
During these five days, the UFRO shows its academic work and research in various meetings and networking, and creates new links in order to expand its network of cooperation with foreign peers. Dr. Pamela Leal, who is in charge of Outreach and International Contacts, said: “Our program is full of activities that will allow us to show the most important aspects of the UFRO and to create strong links with universities in North America.”
