International Students Studying Abroad: Adapting to a New Reality
According to the 2017 Open Doors Report, in the past decade more and more international students are studying at U.S. universities and taking part in study abroad programs. This new reality is impacting how professionals in the field address the expectations of students’ needs, leading to a reformulation of working habits and procedures. In this session, presenters will address the need to acknowledge and understand this trend (Open Doors does not have specific data around this group of students), and identify tools that will help educators better serve these students, while embracing the diversity, richness, and learning opportunities they bring to the student body.
