Resulting from an International Living Center workshop organized by the National Association for Foreign Student Affairs, this document presents a typology of different examples of commonly found international living centers in the United States and Canada. International living centers are broadly defined as a residential center for domestic and foreign people where there is an intentional plan to provide an environment to foster cross-cultural interaction. The centers are categorized according to size, administrative structure, and university affiliation. Information provided for each center includes: background information; composition of residents; staffing; programming; and internal evaluation. Appended are lists of workshop participants, resource persons and their affiliation. (5 references) (LPT)
