Huntsberger, Paul E.
This report presents results of a survey of U.S. postsecondary institutions with agriculture and natural resources programs, concerning institutional support for reentry orientation and alumni networking programs. Reentry orientation" involves programs that help international students become aware of the adjustment aspects of returning home, and "alumni networking" is the linking of international students with their U.S. institutions, former professors, and other associates. Of 88 institutions responding to the survey, 24 reported that they regularly organize and conduct reentry orientation programs, and 25 organize and conduct alumni networking programs. The report discusses responsibility for program organization, international enrollments, types of program activities, and financing of programs. A directory is presented of 55 institutions that provide or plan to provide reentry and/or alumni programs. A list of 11 further readings concludes the report. (JDD)
