In 2012-2013, 819,644 international students studied at U.S. colleges and universities.
The United States is projected to be the largest and fastest-growing destination for foreign students over the next decade.
~British Council's Education Intelligence
International students provide a key source of talent for U.S. employers and are crucial to enhancing the ability of U.S. universities to conduct research and offer high quality academic programs to US. students. International students also provide cultural and foreign policy benefits to the United States and are an important and inexpensive way to promote American ideas and values abroad.
~National Foundation for American Policy, July 2013
In 2012-2013 international students contributed over 24 billion dollars to the U.S. economy through their expenditures on tuition and living expenses.
~U.S. Department of Commerce
Ask questions!
WHAT: What are your goals? What is the mission of your university? How will they enhance your university and the experience of your students?

WHO: What are the essential departments that need to be involved? Who are you recruiting?

WHY: Why is it important for YOUR university to recruit international students? What is important to your department, other departments and colleges on your campus? What is important to your university president?

WHERE: Where are our current international students from? What do they study? What are the current trends?

WHEN: What are the best times of year for travel for each department involved? When you cannot travel are there other options to recruit in your city/state/region? What are the virtual options?

HOW: Be STRATEGIC! What is your budget? Whose support do you have? What are other departments doing? How can current traveling faculty, staff and students participate?
