International Students: Strengthening a Critical Resource


  • Amrita Bhandari



International student mobility is changing quickly in institutions of higher education in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and Canada. In the U.S. alone, the total number of global mobile students reached 9.5 million in 2012. In comparison to other European countries, there are fewer published resources about and for international students in the U.S. In this demanding academic context, I consider International Students: Strengthening a Critical Resource written by Maureen S. Andrade and Norman W. Evans as an important handbook for international students’ educators and administrators. This book addresses eight major issues: adjustment, persistence, recruitment, orientation, English language programs, social support services, intercultural communication and learning, and immigration and legal issues.
