Group Seeks Standards for Paid Recruiters of Students
McMurtrie, Beth
Chronicle of Higher Education, v55 n4 pA22 Sep 2008
In the world of international education, few subjects are as controversial as the use of paid recruiting agents. Paying the agents, particularly on commission, is often viewed as unseemly, if not downright unethical. But a new organization, the American International Recruitment Council, hopes to change that attitude. The council wants to develop standards of ethical practices, provide training for agents, and create a certification system that recognizes the best among them. Its founders believe that the only way in which American colleges can thrive in the heated global competition for students is to use agents, and they argue that it is crucial to regulate this increasingly complex field, as other countries have done.
