From May 28 to June 1, Wallonia-Brussels Campus participated in the 70th conference of the NAFSA in Philadelphia.

NAFSA is the world's largest institutional exhibition in the field of higher education, bringing together thousands of academic delegates sharing their international experiences. During this event, many countries are represented in the exhibition hall. Through its pavilion, Wallonia-Brussels Campus has promoted the higher education offer of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation.

The Wallonia-Brussels delegation included representatives of our universities and university colleges as well as the representative of Wallonia-Brussels Campus. This week allowed them to meet existing partners and sign new  agreements with higher education institutions around the world.

Finally, with the support of Wallonia-Brussels International and in collaboration with our Flemish colleagues and the Fulbright commission, a Belgian networking event was organized at the Philadelphia Center for Architecture and Design. This reception brought together more than 250 guests. As the representative of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation, the Vice-Rector of the University of Mons, Mr. Alain Vande Wouwer gave the opening speech of this very successful evening.
