NAFSA Bookstore to Sell Outside Publications again at Conference

During the upcoming NAFSA conference in Los Angeles the NAFSA Bookstore will be selling international education related titles from other publishers at the NAFSA Bookstore. NAFSA began selling outside publications a few years ago while I was on their Subcommittee on Information Management (SIM) and I learned that this was a big success (for NAFSA and the outside publishers) so I’m pleased to hear that they are continuing trend.

There are some excellent offerings this year from both NAFSA and other publishers. You can learn about all of the various NAFSA publications here on their website. Here is the list of non-NAFSA publications that will be available for review and purchase at the NAFSA Bookstore in Los Angeles:

- Educating Global Citizens in Colleges and Universities - Challenges and Opportunities (Routledge)

- The Handbook of Practice and Research in Study Abroad - Higher Education and the Quest for Global Citizenship (Routledge)

Higher Education and International Student Mobility in the Global Knowledge Economy (SUNY Press)

The First Time Effect: The Impact of Study Abroad on College Student Intellectual Development (SUNY Press)

- Developing Intercultural Competence and Transformation (Stylus Publishing)

- Driving Change Through Diversity and Globalization-Transformative Leadership in the Academy (Stylus Publishing)

Additionally, NAFSA members are eligible for discounts on cross- cultural resources from the
Intercultural Press which I imagine will have a booth in the exhibit hall again this year.

If you’re interested in proposing a publication or writing for NAFSA I encourage you to visit their “Get Published in NAFSA Publications” page here. I encourage all conference attendees to find some time in their busy schedules to stop by the NAFSA Bookstore as this is a excellent opportunity to pick-up some great literature.


  1. My book with Sherry Mueller, Working World: Careers in International Education, Exchange, and Development (Georgetown University Press, 2008:, will also be on sale at the NAFSA bookstore. Make sure to check it out, or recommend to those contemplating an international career.

  2. @Mark ~ Thanks for your comment about Working World also being available for sale at the NAFSA Bookstore. Working World wasn't listed in the posts NAFSA was sending to their various networks and in their news which is where I got my information so I'm sorry I missed it.
