Issues of International Student Retention in American Higher Education
Bista, Krishna; Foster, Charlotte
Online Submission, The International Journal of Research and Review v7 n2 p1-10 Oct 2011
This paper focused on issues of retention and the individual needs of international students at a southern university through videotaped group interviews with six students from Africa, China, India, Japan, Jordan, and Nepal. Students were asked questions concerning their first experiences at the university, experiences out in the community, academic issues and concerns, and other needs. Asking for and paying attention to the details that support international students in their quest to receive an American education will support the students where they need it and also provide an atmosphere that will encourage more international students to follow.
