Lynn University will host the Council of International Schools (CIS) Latin America Institute on International Admission & Guidance, one of the longest-standing Latin American conferences for the international admission and high school guidance counselor community, Sept. 28–30.

The CIS Latin America Institute is an annual regional conference, where Latin American high school guidance counselors connect with admission officers from CIS member colleges and universities around the world. The event is in partnership with the Tri-Association and the Association of American Schools in South America (AASSA).

“It’s an honor to be selected as the first university and U.S. location to host the CIS Latin America Institute,” said Lynn Vice President for Enrollment Management Gareth Fowles. “Lynn was ranked this month as the most international university in the region, and South America and the Caribbean represent a large population of our students. We look forward to welcoming guidance counselors and admission professionals from around the world to our campus.”

The event will kick off with the Boca Raton International College and University Fair Sept. 28, 6–8 p.m., at Lynn’s Keith C. and Elaine Johnson Wold Performing Arts Center. Nearly 400 students and their families, as well as approximately 50 Latin American high school guidance counselors, will meet over 50 colleges from the U.S., Canada and Europe.

The two-day program for counselors on international admission and guidance will begin Sept. 29. Topics will include international student mobility, regional developments, trends and other issues affecting Latin American and Caribbean students. The event will also offer two networking fairs and an evening reception.

“We look forward to holding this institute at Lynn University, a longstanding CIS member institution with a stellar commitment to international students,” said Nunana Nyomi, assistant director of higher education services at CIS. “This venue is a perfect backdrop for learning and relationship-building to take place through our institute. The links forged here have the potential to cause a large ripple effect which will positively impact university opportunities for Latin American and Caribbean students for years to come.”
