NAFSA webinars/chats are normally open to anyone, not just NAFSA members. She would like to ask CCID members to help select a topic that is relevant to their institutions.

U.S.-UK CVE Community Leaders Two-way Exchange

U.S. Mission to the United Kingdom

This exchange will bring U.S. and UK CVE community leaders together to learn from each other’s experiences in promoting tolerance and preventing radicalization in their communities. The UK groups will travel to all three U.S. cities and meet with various members of the communities, then after 3-4 months, the U.S. group will travel to the UK. The program seeks to provide increased and improved dialogue within communities on difficult issues and to create a new aspect of the Special Relationship among communities in the UK, which often do not share the traditional links between the U.S. and UK. 

Deadline: September 19, 2016
