About the Episode

Karin Fischer, a senior writer on international education at The Chronicle of Higher Education, offers an expert perspective on the challenges and solutions for recruiting international students to American higher education institutions.

  • International enrollment is on the rise, but the makeup of international students has shifted dramatically.
  • Colleges need to adapt their support services to meet the unique needs of international students, including career services with cultural and visa law knowledge.
