Resource description

This study is based on interviews with individuals from four academic departments at a top mid-western research university. It identifies the challenges international students face as: functioning in English; achieving unique academic goals; adjusting culturally and integrating with American students. The benefits of having international students on campus include: filling research assistant vacancies; assisting in establishing international ties and providing American students with a more accurate perception of their life circumstances. The main challenges for faculty range from integrating with domestic students to managing their own preferences for having American students in the research group.
