Foreign Student Recruitment: Realities and Recommendations. A Colloquium (Wingspread, Racine, Wisconsin, March 26-28, 1980).
Jenkins, Hugh M., Ed.
Proceedings of a colloquium on foreign student recruitment, sponsored by the National Liaison Committee on Foreign Student Admissions, are presented. The colloquium was designed to examine the demographic and economic conditions that have created the need to increase recruiting practices currently taking place. Included are a review of the agents in the recruitment business and the alternatives facing the U.S. educational community in responding to uncontrolled and ethically suspect activities. Two background papers are presented, the first of which, "Foreign Student Recruitment--Why?" by Malcolm Scully, presents demographic data projecting postsecondary enrollment patterns to the end of the century and documenting the present unsettled state of many institutions due to declining enrollments. In the second background paper, Fred Lockyear describes "Current Practices in Foreign Student Recruitment." Discussions of these papers are included, as are the materials produced by two working groups. One group developed guidelines for the establishment of a clearinghouse to collect and disseminate information about recruiting activities and procedures. The other prepared statements identifying abuses in recruitment that are of common concern and a set of criteria for ethical recruitment. In reaching concensus on the conclusions of both working groups, the total assembly discussed ways of disseminating the information throughout the educational community and of promoting ethical practices.
