Educating Students from Other Nations - A Handbook for Administrators.
Wallin, Franklin W.
Change, v15 n6 p57-58 Sep 1983
A book written for administrators of international student programs in the United States is given a favorable review. The book, "Educating Students from Other Nations: American Colleges and Universities in International Education," by Hugh M. Jenkins and associates, provides state-of-the-art descriptions of what program administrators think is the best practice and how they conduct their operations. The following topics are covered: (1) issues relating to recruitment of "foreign" students; (2) a flow-chart and practical advice for the handling of applications by admissions officers; (3) interpretation of the complex and changing network of immigration rules and regulations; (4) an analysis of the costs and benefits of educational interchange; and (5) a survey showing what good professionals are doing. The book takes a short-term view of the critical questions facing the international education community today, and leaves the distant future to other authors. Familiar solutions are suggested for administering scarce resources so that as many students as possible can participate in the exchange programs. (JW)
