Why do international students leave U.S. institutions of higher education before completing a degree? What are some methods that would help them to stay? NAFSA sought answers to these questions through the research study, "Bridging the Gap: Recruitment and Retention to Improve International Student Experience. This new research reveals a disparity in the perspective of institutions and students on the reasons why students leave their institution of first enrollment, and offers a number of best practices to help combat poor retention.
In this webinar, we blend current student retention research and trends with a close look at how three distinct institutions approach international student retention. They share how their campuses identify student risks and needs, match interventions with those needs, and demonstrate how these efforts impact current international student populations and campus retention data. This webinar will help participants map their own quest toward a more strategic way of addressing and supporting retention efforts on their campus. Please join Heather Housley of Georgia State University, Teter Kapan of Chemeketa Community College, and Sheila Schulte of the Georgia Institute of Technology as they demonstrate the “how to” of international student retention.
