This post celebrating International Education Week kicks off a series of snapshots from ACE’s recent report, Mapping Internationalization on U.S. Campuses: 2017 Edition.
Over 70 percent of institutions said that internal funding for internationalization increased or remained the same between 2013 and 2016, according to Mapping Internationalization on U.S. Campuses: 2017 Edition.
One of the key findings of the report indicates an increasing investment in student mobility relative to other aspects of internationalization. This is also reflected in stated priorities: Increasing study abroad for U.S. students and recruiting international students ranked first and second in higher education internationalization for U.S. institutions.
However, the level of support international students receive in the United States remains a concern. The survey data indicated that except for the support international students receive during their arrival, longer-term support services and programs are less common.
The report, written by ACE’s Center for Internationalization and Global Engagement, was based on a survey of 1,164 colleges and universities nationwide conducted in 2016.
