International Students


​​​​​​​​​​​​​International students are key contributors to comprehensive internationalization and bring global perspectives to the classroom and campus life. In an increasingly competitive global higher education landscape, institutions need to refine their outreach and recruiting strategies, along with clearly articulating their unique character and value proposition. Equally important, attention and resources are required to ensure that international students are well supported and ready to succeed and thrive throughout the entire student lifecycle—from recruiting through graduation and beyond. ACE's research and resources address key issues and policies related to international students and highlight strategies and good practices from a variety of institutions.

In addition to our research, you can learn more about our advocacy work in the international student space.
