NAFSA, US. NAFSA: Association of International Educators has announced that Fanta Aw, a current vice president at American University and a career-long champion of campus internationalisation, will serve as its next executive director and CEO. Fanta served as the president and chair of NAFSA’s board of directors from 2013 to 2016 – the longest tenure of any individual in that role in NAFSA’s history. In 2018, she also received the NAFSA International Education Award for Distinguished Service. Fanta’s varied leadership roles at American University—including vice president for undergraduate enrolment, campus life, and inclusive excellence—demonstrate her skills in forging collaboration across multiple internal and external entities. Fanta said of her new role, starting in March: ““This new opportunity at NAFSA represents a true homecoming for me, and I couldn’t be happier. NAFSA is a venerable association that has been at the leading edge of international education throughout its existence. It is my honour to guide its next chapter.”
