Institute of International Education, New York, NY.
The Institute of International Education estimates that the number of foreign students in the US, which was 6,500 in the 1921-1922 academic year, exceeded 121,000 between 1968 and 1969. The data in this report were collected during 4 surveys that focused on the volume of educational exchange between the US and the rest of the world. The data on foreign nationals in the US and on US faculty members abroad are for the 1968-1969 academic year, and those on US students abroad are for the 1967-1968 academic year. Information on the 121,362 foreign students include: country of origin, where studies were undertaken, length of stay and intent to remain in the US, fields of study, academic status, sources of support, and the ratio of men to women. Data on the 12,137 foreign faculty members and scholars in the US include nationality, fields of interest, and institutions where more than 100 have concentrated. For the 25,359 US students abroad, the report covers: fields of study, where studies were undertaken, and students enrolled in special (usually summer) sessions. These students are compared with their foreign counterparts in the US. Information on the 5,639 US faculty members abroad include fields of interest, the names of host countries to 50 or more US professors, and the names of US institutions with 40 or more professors abroad. Nine statistical tables comprise almost 50% of the report, and 20 charts and graphs appear with the text. An explanation of how the surveys were conducted is also included. (WM)
