de Wit, Hans; Ferencz, Irina; Rumbley, Laura E. – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2013
The most striking trend in international student mobility over the past forty years is the increase in the number of globally circulating students, from approximately 250,000 in 1965, up to an estimated 3.7 million at present (OECD 2011: 320, UNESCO 2006: 34). Perhaps as important as the growing numbers of students is the fact that the traditional…

Labi, Aisha – Chronicle of Higher Education, 2012
As Europe has lurched from one economic crisis to another in recent months, one thing has become clear: Any long-term solution will depend on the willingness of Germany, Europe's largest economy, to shoulder much of the financial burden the debt crisis has created. German taxpayers, known for their thrift, have balked at underwriting what many see…

Gorsuch, Greta – Forum on Public Policy Online, 2011
China has become an exporter of material goods to the world, particularly to the United States.

Taylor-Buckner, Nicole – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2010
As the first decade of the groundbreaking European higher education reformation known as the Bologna Process comes to a close, its impact on the field of mathematics is significant in many ways.

Branch-Brioso, Karen – Diverse: Issues in Higher Education, 2009
While the number of exchange visas for international students and professors is up overall, the post-Sept. 11 decline continues for many majority-Muslim countries.

Charlier, Jean-Emile; Croche, Sarah – European Education, 2008
In the early 1990s, the number of Europeans studying in the United States for the first time exceeded the number of Americans studying in Europe (Haug 2000, p. 27). This evolution was regarded as a very serious threat in European capitals. Public authorities in large countries requested their intellectuals to explain to them why European…

Elliott, Timothy Lynn; Johnson, Julie – Frontiers: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Study Abroad, 2007
Colin Smith's experience in South Africa and his research on the role of storytelling in the Xhosa culture met all of the guiding principles of Brigham Young University's (BYU) International Field Study Program: that students are prepared to do serious research in a topic that relates to their major, and that they will be in the host country for…
