EducationUSA 2017's Forum was held in Washington, D.C., from July 31-August 2. This is the second time I participated in this event.
EducationUSA is a United States Department of State network of more than 400 international student advising centers in more than 170 countries.
During the forum, I met with Mark Taplin, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for the U. S. Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs at the Department of State (pictured at right).
The network promotes U.S. higher education to students around the world by offering accurate, comprehensive, and current information about opportunities to study at accredited postsecondary institutions in the United States. EducationUSA also provides services to the U.S. higher education community to help institutional leaders meet their recruitment and campus internationalization goals.
I met U.S. embassy ambassadors from over 45 countries, and many of them have invited me to participate college fairs that will be held by EducationUSA in their representing countries.
This networking opportunity opened the door for Pitt-Johnstown to welcome the world!
