US INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION STUDY STATE CONSORTIA
GOOGLE GROUP Discussion List

Welcome! This is an informally organized volunteer US International Education Study State Consortia Google Group to serve as a connecting platform for members of the US International Education Study State Consortia. This effort will act as a discussion list, and allow us to connect easily and quickly. Membership will be reserved primarily for Study State consortia members, as well as members from US Commercial Service, US Dept of State, NAFSA, EducationUSA and State agencies who are engaged in supporting this effort.  Please feel free to invite members of your Study State to join.

Thanks!

  2. If your organization does not allow you to access Google products you are still welcome to join using your organization email address.  You should be able to receive messages and post messages (see note 3), however you will be unable to access the Google Groups web interface.
  3. If you are from an institution or organization using Google as the domain manger for their email systems you also may be able to join.
