EducationUSA Pakistan’s first in-person ‘all advisers meeting’ in two years was held in the capital city from May 16-19. Advisers from all three offices assembled at USEFP’s Islamabad office for a productive week of discussions, presentations, and group activities.
Some highlights included a tour of the National Library of Pakistan, also home to a Lincoln Corner, in-depth conversations about programming and strategic goals, intense brainstorming sessions, and plans to resume more in-person sessions in the upcoming year.
The team also celebrated EducationUSA Pakistan’s achievements. Over the last year, EducationUSA Pakistan conducted 250 successful virtual events, with a digital outreach of more than 64,000 students, parents, and counselors. Around 6,100 students were advised virtually.
