Going Global

In a move to increase its out-of-state and international student enrollment, officials at the University of Iowa are stepping up their global recruitment efforts--even in the face of criticism that the school may be losing sight of its mission. The goal is to increase enrollment across the board, with both in-state as well as out-of-state and international students. Dr. Downing Thomas, UI's dean of international programs, says the effort to expand the school's international profile is more than just a campaign to increase enrollment. UI's international student enrollment increases are coming during a time of rising international student enrollment nationally. According to the Institute of International Education, the number of international students at American colleges and universities reached a record high of 671,616 last year with the University of Southern California leading the way with 7,482, followed by New York University at 6,761 and Columbia University at 6,685. According to Scott King, director of the Office of International Students and Scholars at UI, the increasing international presence, fueled by top-feeder countries China, South Korea and Malaysia, is the result of trends that have taken place for several years.
