Thank you for all conference attendees, presenters, panelists and volunteers who came to the 6th annual NW Returnee Conference! It was another successful conference, and we hope to stay in touch with you.

About the conference:

The NWRC is a professional conference for students and recent graduates who have returned from an international education experience (study abroad, international internship, service learning, etc.). The conference was founded in 2009 by leading international educators throughout Oregon who sought to provide greater support and resources for returnees. To learn more about the structure of the conference and workshops offered, please explore the conference schedule section of our website. To subscribe to our e-mail listserv, click here.

Our Mission:

The NWRC conference strives to cultivate and support the growth of global citizenship by encouraging returnees to reflect upon and understand their recently acquired international experience. The conference provides re-entry support, networking opportunities, skill building workshops, and professional development training.
It is our goal that through participation in this conference, returnees learn to identify and articulate gained skills that enrich and foster their future careers, educational endeavors, and community involvement.

Thank you,

NWRC Planning Committee
