Dear PIER Members,

I know many of you are preparing for the end of the Spring semester and quarter while the IEP’s are preparing for their busy Summer ahead. For those of you returning from your Spring break, welcome back and for those of you about to go on Spring break, enjoy your time off. There are two more PIER meetings and then we complete our 2014-2015 meetings until September when our meetings resume.

Our next PIER Meeting is April 15 at Grossmont College. Agenda, directions and your parking permit have been sent out via emails. Full instructions are in the PIER meeting agenda. If you did not receive your parking permit, please email me, the PIER Chair at piergroupsd@gmail.com and I will send as an attachment.

PIER is always looking for best ways to serve our members, please email the PIER Chair and Vice Chair at piergroupsd@gmail.com with your suggestions to make PIER meetings and the group to meet your needs as an international educator.

Brazil Scientific Mobility Program (BSMP) NAFSA Discussion NAFSA will have a one-hour Collegial Conversation discussing the Brazil Scientific Mobility Program (BSMP) to learn
how several institutions are supporting BSMP students, administering the program, and enjoying its positive impact within the campus community. Join the NAFSA discussion on April 22, at 3:00 p.m. (EDT). The BSMP program provides Brazil’s top students with the life-changing opportunity to study in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields at colleges and universities in the United States.
