NAFSA Self-Study Guide: A Guide for the Self-Assessment of Programs and Services with International Educational Exchange at Postsecondary Institutions.
National Association for Foreign Student Affairs, Washington, DC.
Guidelines for conducting a self-study of international educational exchange programs and services are provided for colleges and universities. Attention is directed to: the self-regulation program of the National Association for Foreign Student Affairs (NAFSA), conducting NAFSA self-study processes, and using NAFSA principles. The major elements in the self-regulation system are programs of institutional and programmatic accreditation and voluntary adherence to codes of ethics, principles, or standards of good practice. A cornerstone of the system is self-study. Eleven purposes of a self-study process are identified, along with dimensions for effective self-analysis processes. General procedures for conducting the self-study are discussed, as are the design and organization of the study. Attention is also directed to the use of NAFSA principles that apply to: institutions, the admission of foreign students, English programs and determination of English proficiency, foreign student/scholar services, the provision of community services and programs, and U.S. study abroad. A case study of a theoretical but typical university is included, along with information on six agencies that provide information on self-studies. (SW)
