Crucial Issues in Foreign Student Education. Report of the National Association for Foreign Student Affairs.
National Association for Foreign Student Affairs, Washington, DC.
It is the intent of this report to review the history of the Crucial Issues Project and to summarize the activities of the National Association for Foreign Student Affairs and individual NAFSA members as they may relate to concerns raised at the Brainerd, Minnesota meeting in October 1970. Although as many as 12 important issues were identified at the Brainerd meeting, several were interrelated and can be summarized under three major headings: orientation, foreign student financing, and institutional policies related to foreign student admissions. The issues raised point to a continuing need for further development, research, and action to deal with such major concerns as foreign student employment and finances, programs of on-going orientation to the U.S. and predeparture orientation, the relevancy of academic programs, and job placement in the home country.
