This study examined the perceptions of college students regarding the benefits and challenges in interacting with international faculty. A Likert scale survey was administered to students from 13 face-to-face or online classes yielding 212 usable questionnaires. The results showed that students had both positive perceptions and concerns about their interactions with international faculty. Where there were differences among groups, younger students, females, Caucasians, undergraduates, those who had not taken classes with international faculty, and those who attended activities sponsored by international faculty or organizations tended to have more positive perceptions than their counterparts. Implications of the study are discussed.
