About Conferences and Outreach

The Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) is dedicated to keeping our stakeholders informed about important updates and information related to the program.

We welcome the opportunity to participate in stakeholder conferences and related events. These events provide SEVP with additional opportunities to engage with our stakeholders, provide program updates and address stakeholder questions. If you are interested in SEVP participating in your upcoming conference or event, email your request to and our team will follow-up shortly.

Please note: To attend events in-person, SEVP must receive requests at least 10 weeks prior to the event. To attend virtually (i.e., by webinar or teleconference), SEVP must receive requests at least four weeks before the event. This period of time allows us to develop a brief tailored to your organization’s specific needs and interests, and select the appropriate SEVP subject matter experts to present and respond to your stakeholders’ questions.

Prior to the spring/summer and fall/winter conference seasons, SEVP leadership meets to determine key topics and content for the upcoming season's events. For stakeholders unable to attend conferences and other events in person, SEVP summarizes key content into a recorded presentation and executive summary. Additionally, SEVP connects with stakeholders virtually via teleconferences, webinars and through a variety of helpful resources and publications listed below.

To view this season’s presentation, please visit the Fall/Winter 2014 Conference Presentation page on Study in the States.

You can stay up-to-date on the latest SEVP conference and outreach news by subscribing to the monthly SEVP Conference Bulletin. To subscribe, send an email to with your request.
