The Foreign Undergraduate Student: Institutional Priorities for Action.
College Entrance Examination Board, New York, NY.
A group representing United States higher education, Federal Government, foundations, and professional agencies and associations met to discuss the issue of the impact that undergraduate foreign students and United States postsecondary education have on each other. The meeting was organized around three prepared papers. The papers dealt with the ideal, the real, and the practical approach to undergraduate foreign student programs. This document reprints those papers. With insights gathered from the colloquium, some guidelines were established that might be utilized entirely or in part by institutions, government, professional associations, and foundations as they develop an achievable strategy, one in which the "ideal," or the dream, and the "real" with all its existing constraints, were concurrently examined. Some recommendations include: (1) information sources overseas; (2) integrity in admissions; (3) clearinghouses; (4) curricular reform; (5) legislation; (6) service to institutions; (7) institutional self-study; (8) research; (9) two-year colleges; (10) proprietary schools; (11) liaison with financial aid office; (12) accrediting; (13) international foreign student association.
