Today, the Institute of International Education (IIE), together with the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, released the latest news on international students in the United States and U.S. students studying abroad.
The Open Doors® findings will also be a topic of a briefing this morning, at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, with Assistant Secretary of State Evan M. Ryan and IIE President Allan E. Goodman, in conjunction with the worldwide observance of International Education Week.
We expect to see press coverage in major news outlets in the United States and around the world beginning today and throughout the week.
To access the new data and background information to help explain the trends, go to www.iie.org/opendoors.
We encourage you to share this information with the press office on your campus and to work with them to publicize your institution’s success in hosting international students and sending your students to study abroad. You can localize the story by providing details about the students coming to and going from your campus, such as where they come from, where they go, what they study, and what effect this has on your campus and community.
The print publication will be available in February 2016. At that time a free complimentary print copy of Open Doors 2015 will be sent to the survey respondent on each campus who provided data on international student flows, and to the international student designee of IIENetwork member campuses, as a benefit of your IIENetwork membership. If you are unsure of your IIENetwork membership status, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
