Tuesday, July 14, 2020

Director of international student and scholar services Kenneth Reade was recently appointed to serve on the Government Regulatory Affairs Committee (GRAC) of the New England region (Region XI) of NAFSA: Association of International Educators. Reade’s appointment began July 1, and is a 3-year position.

The GRAC committee specializes in United States laws, rules and regulations at the federal, state and local level as they pertain to international students and scholars enrolled, employed or visiting educational institutions in the six New England states.

“Ken’s appointment to the GRAC comes at a particularly important moment as higher education grapples with an increasingly challenging regulatory landscape for international students and scholars.  I am very pleased that institutions across New England will benefit from Ken’s recognized expertise in this field,” said Kalpen Trivedi, associate provost for international programs.
