The Forum on Education Abroad, of which ASAPI is a reciprocal member, has issued a response to the executive order banning travelers from seven Muslim-majority nations. The Forum states that it "is strongly against President Trump’s actions, which run counter to the international education values that we work so hard to achieve." A running list of University and Higher Education Association responses can also be found at the International Higher Education Consulting Blog.
ASAPI held its AGM on 27 January, outlining organizational accomplishments since it was founded in 2013 and setting an ambitious program for development in the next 2-4 years. A new Executive Committee was elected and the dedicated service of outgoing Co-Chair Karl Dowling was acknowledged. Congratulations to the newly elected members of the ASAPI Executive Committee.
