Undergraduate Foreign Student Review.
Bailey, Robert L.; Powell, Frances
In July 1970 the University of California reviewed and made recommendations for its international educational exchange program for all campuses. The recommendations were: (1) foreign students should be 4-6 percent of the student population on each campus; (2) they should be admitted once a year, with early admission deadlines; (3) they should have adequate financial support; (4) they should be better distributed (geographically and in academic disciplines); (5) English language proficiency should be assured; (6) foreign student offices should have sufficient staffs; (7) physical facilities should be designated to promote interaction between foreign and American students; and (8) orientation programs should be expanded. For the most part these goals have not been met at Berkeley, and the present study was undertaken to determine why, and what can be done for foreign student programs in the future, especially in relation to the admissions and records office functions. Some numerical data are provided, in tabular form. (MSE)
