Abstract:

"Although college campuses are increasingly recruiting international students, they are failing to provide student support services for these populations. Sharing case studies of students and examples of innovative initiatives, this book explores strategies and key recommendations for universities to re-conceptualize their programs to better welcome and support international students. Emphasizing the relational aspect of academic, social, and engagement activities on campus, the authors provide a framework that supports students from initial contact through graduation. Grounded in theory and addressing issues of language, engagement, and culture, Creating the Internationally Inclusive Campus arms universities with the innovative strategies for supporting all students' success"--
