Developing a Host Culture for International Students: What Does It Take?
Marangell, Samantha; Arkoudis, Sophie; Baik, Chi
Journal of International Students, v8 n3 p1440-1458 2018
This article argues that international student integration is not only a university issue, but a community one. Thus, the next step for universities' internationalization strategies requires expanding efforts to include engagement with the greater community and bringing a community-based approach to internationalization processes. Doing so will both better serve the international student population and also create a more well-rounded internationalized university experience for all students by acknowledging and harnessing the inherent diversity of the local community. In particular, this article discusses the university's role in facilitating such a community based approach. It will then examine possible strategies and practical suggestions for how universities can step beyond campus-specific policies and instead foster student engagement with and within the greater local community.
