AMERICAN-FOREIGN STUDENT RELATIONSHIPS. GUIDELINES.
National Association for Foreign Student Affairs, Washington, DC.
THE DEVELOPMENT OF AMERICAN-FOREIGN STUDENT RELATIONSHIPS IS A CYCLICAL PROCESS THAT REQUIRES PROGRAMMING TO GENERATE THE PROCESS. THE FOREIGN STUDENT ADVISOR IS PRIMARILY A CATALYST. HIS ROLE MAY ALSO INCLUDE COORDINATION, SUPPORT, CONTINUATION, EVALUATION, AND CHANGE. SUGGESTIONS RELEVANT TO THE FORMULATION OF THE GOALS OF SUCH RELATIONSHIPS ARE GIVEN. ASSESSING THE CAMPUS SITUATION AS IT RELATES TO AMERICAN-FOREIGN STUDENT RELATIONSHIPS INVOLVES--(1) CONSIDERATION OF OBJECTIVE ATTRIBUTES, (2) EVALUATION OF CURRENT CAMPUS PRACTICES AND PROGRAMS, AND (3) DETERMINATION OF THE LEVEL OF PROGRAMMING. SUGGESTIONS FOR ORIENTATION PROGRAMS, WORK WITH ESTABLISHED CAMPUS GROUPS AND INDIVIDUALS, ACCEPTANCE OF LIMITATIONS, CREATION OF OPPORTUNITIES, AND THE USE OF FACILITIES ARE MADE. THE WAY IN WHICH FOREIGN STUDENTS ARE HOUSED HAS AN IMMEDIATE EFFECT ON THE CHANCES FOR ASSOCIATION. GATHERING PLACES, EATING FACILITIES, CLASSROOM AND ACADEMIC ASSOCIATIONS CAN ALSO EXPAND THE OPPORTUNITIES FOR CONTACT. SUGGESTED RULES OF THUMB ARE PRESENTED FOR ADDITIONAL PROGRAMS. THE SPECIAL PROBLEMS OF THE GRADUATE FOREIGN STUDENT ARE DISCUSSED. INTERINSTITUTIONAL COOPERATION CAN FURTHER ENRICH PROGRAMS. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE FROM THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR FOREIGN STUDENT AFFAIRS OFFICE, 1860 19TH STREET, N.W., WASHINGTON, D.C. 20009 FOR $0.50. (PS)
