What Others Are Saying about the 2010 Conference
“I made many useful contacts. Several presenters talked with me separately and helped me determine my target market. One presenter through his role-modeling taught me much about coaching.”
World Wide Synergy
“Conferences are a great way to reconnect with colleagues and make new friends in the intercultural field. The workshops are always rich with content and the conference committee always selects premiere speakers and topics. I recommend the SIETAR USA Conference to anyone who wants to "innovate" their approach to intercultural issues."
Farzana Nayani, Trainer/Consultant.
“One of the most beneficial aspects of attending the SIETAR USA Conference was meeting colleagues working in diverse areas of intercultural education, worldwide. My participation in the conference helped me realize that the field of intercultural education is incredibly diverse and that those who are working in the field are "trailblazers" who are helping to raise the profile of intercultural education and research in our communities.”

“This was my first experience attending the SIETAR USA conference and I found it to be educational, enlightening and entertaining. What an incredible opportunity it was to be in the presence of such esteemed scholars who know no boundaries or hierarchy. It was such a warm and inviting community of Interculturalists and they made me feel very welcome! Look forward to coming back year after year! Thank you for a wonderful event!”

“While I have served as the Diversity Advisor for NAFSA: Association of International Educators and currently serve as the Director for the nation's largest diversity conference, NCORE: National Conference on Race and Ethnicity in American Higher Education, I am hesitant to say that this was my first SIETAR conference. I found it to be charming, cozy and not too large and very friendly. The sessions were very interesting and the hotel was just right for it. I would be glad to help SIETAR and be part of it. SIETAR was wonderful and I look forward to joining you in Colorado! Thank you”

“This was my first SIETAR-USA conference and I was impressed by the quality of content, the friendships I started to develop and the overall atmosphere of camaraderie. I brought home 5 books and more information than what I hoped for in the beginning. I recommend for all students and professionals in the area of intercultural issues.”
