Navigating in a Multinational Learning Community: Academic Departments' Responses to Graduate International Students
Trice, Andrea G.
Journal of Studies in International Education, v9 n1 p62-89 2005
This qualitative study examines how four academic departments responded to the presence of large numbers of graduate international students. Results focus on faculty members' responses to international students as advisors, instructors, and supervisors; departmental policies established to address their presence; and the unresolved issues that often remained for faculty. The study also examines the role that international students played in shaping departments' responses to them.
