The Northwest Returnee Conference (NWRC) is a professional conference for students and recent graduates who have returned from an international education experience (study abroad, international internship, service learning, etc.). The conference was founded in 2009 by leading international educators throughout Oregon who sought to provide greater support and resources for returnees.
