International Graduate Student Mobility in the US: What More Can We Be Doing?
Roberts, Darbi L.
Journal of College and Character, v13 n1 Feb 2012
This article examines the current growth statistics of international graduate student populations in the United States in order to present trends in international student mobility. Although many scholars suggest the United States is facing a decrease in future international student demand, recent studies seem to challenge this theory. This article identifies factors in international student decisions influencing these trends and concludes with considerations for how student affairs and services practitioners can better serve international students in light of these considerations, arguing that leaders should take a greater role and more proactive approach to serving this subpopulation to aid in their short transition.
