A Personal Touch at Kerr


On March 17, the Region XII Northern District of NAFSA: Association of International Educators, held its annual conference at the Clark Kerr Conference Center. This year's conference was by far the largest ever and it was the first time that the conference site returned to a university setting in more than 14 years.

The conference attendees were not only impressed with the friendly surroundings of Clark Kerr Campus but also with the touching addresses delivered by the Vice Chancellor Carol Christ and Maresi Nerad, director of graduate research.

The conference featured a myriad of experts in international education who addressed the plenary theme, "Concepts for Creating Harmony from Conflict." An elegant luncheon and exquisite late afternoon dessert reception was provided by the courteous and competent Clark Kerr catering staff. Because of the many personal touches that this conference presented, the conference was extremely well received.

I would like to thank the campus officials and staff who earnestly contributed their time and talent. Your interest in providing quality service greatly reinforced the ability for the campus to remain a gracious host to several hundred first-time visitors.

From the sign makers in Physical Plant to the cooks at Clark Kerr, on behalf of Region XII Northern District, thank you. Your contribution is highly visible and valued by all associated with NAFSA: Association of International Educators.
