Congratulations to Jessica Sandberg of Temple University for making the Chronicle of Higher Education's 2017 Influence List for the #YouAreWelcomeHere campaign!

A well deserved recognition of Jessica Sandberg's efforts with the #YouAreWelcomeHere campaign!  I have never met Jessica but I've known about her and her efforts for about a year and have known here electronically for only ~6 months as we were both invited (along with other esteemed colleagues) to participate in the inaugural World Education Services #IntlEdNow Tweetchat which was a discussion on international education in a shifting geopolitical climate back in June 2017. 

I'm such a fan of the work of Jessica and the #YouAreWelcomeHere campaign that I talked/wrote about her and the campaign in my invited talk and stimulus paper at the 2017 IEAA Research Roundtable in Hobart, Tasmania on October 10, 2017 entitled "The Rise of Social Media in Public Influence for International Education".

I just wanted to give a brief congratulations and shout out to Jessica.  Below are two embedded tweets that I saw this evening that alerted me to the Chronicle's 2017 Influence List.

  1. David, I just stumbled across your post today and wanted to say THANK YOU. This is such a nice tribute and I am equally a fan of the work you do for our profession. I hope we'll meet in person sometime soon! NAFSA perhaps?

    1. HI Jessica, It would be great to meet in person and I will be at NAFSA. As the conference approaches let's be in touch to find a time to connect! Best, David
