Every year, NAFSA holds an annual conference and exhibition that attracts thousands of higher education officials from around the world. This conference provides an opportunity for Iraqi educators to learn more about the U.S. higher education system and engage with counterparts from universities around the world. Delegates will attend sessions, participate in small group discussions, share information about Iraqi institutions and higher education in Iraq, and make contacts for future collaboration. The Government of Iraq and the United States are jointly committed through the U.S. – Iraq Strategic Framework Agreement to the establishment of affiliations between Iraqi and U.S. institutions to promote and facilitate coordination in the field of higher education and scientific research
