Conclusion

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This concluding chapter identifies a series of common themes discussed across the previous chapters in this book. We follow the life cycle of international students, from the time they begin considering their options for studying abroad to the time they complete their studies. What students seek prior to arrival is a highquality education and a global experience. Both goals are contingent upon successful integration into American universities, which is the focal inquiry of the second section. This section provides empirical evidence for the academic and social challenges that Asian international students experience, as well as some innovative solutions and strategies suggested by faculty and administrators to support international students. These innovative strategies also exemplify the spirit of the two-way street of learning between American universities and Asian international students. The final section looks ahead, after graduation. In sum, this book highlights that there is a lack of knowledge about and institutional support for international students from Asia. Thus, we hope that this book can inspire higher education institutions to make positive changes to the international student experience.
