Professional Development


The success of the SAF model of student mobility through a multilateral network of universities requires considerable contributions and engagement of member institutions.  To support and develop the SAF membership, SAF sponsors a variety of Professional Development Programs (PDPs) each year that are designed to engage members with the SAF mission, develop expertise in the field of study abroad and provide advice and guidance to the Foundation as we move forward with program development and program review.

Host University Visit Programs:  SAF is committed to ensuring that international educators from our member universities in Asia have the opportunity to learn first-hand about the host universities their students attend. To this end, SAF sponsors host university visits in the United States and Canada prior to the NAFSA National Conference, and in Europe prior to the EAIE Annual Conference. For our latest professional development program, we  invited our university partners from across Asia to learn about the opportunities available for students at our Southern California member universities.

SAF International Advisory Council (IAC):  It is through the SAF IAC country chapters that SAF shares information about the direction of the organization and receives feedback from member universities on program and network development. 

SAF Annual Reception at NAFSA: 
 The SAF annual reception at NAFSA provides an opportunity for SAF member university representatives to gather and develop professional relationships that contribute to the internationalization activities of SAF and member institutions.
