Jenkins, Hugh M.; And Others
The range of problems, issues, and practices pertaining to international educational interchange in higher education are reviewed in this handbook for campus-based personnel and the community at large dealing with the 300,000 foreign students in America. Needs and obligations of both students and institutions are spelled out, and guidelines are presented for strengthening the process and outcomes of international study. Three main sections of the book cover (1) challenges and opportunities, (2) strengthening the process at U.S. institutions, and (3) realizing the potential of interchange. The 13 chapters are as follows: "Growth and Impact of Educational Interchanges" (Hugh M. Jenkins); "Preparing Students for Study Outside Their Home Countries" (Ellen E. Mashiko); "U.S. Students Abroad" (M. Archer Brown); "Finances: Finding the Funds for International Study" (Joan H. Joshi); "Recruitment: Ensuring Educational and Ethical Standards" (Hugh M. Jenkins); "Admissions: Developing Effective Selection Practices" (William S.
