You may have a rich history of enrolling international students, or perhaps you are contemplating starting a new international program. Wherever you are in the process, failing to thoroughly explore the “why” behind your desire to enroll international students can expose your school to significant risk.
If your “why” is predominantly revenue-focused without a well-developed process for successful assimilation, or if you’re not aware of changing Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) requirements, your program may not be successful. Based on ISM's leading-edge study of factors most significantly impacting schools enrolling international students, discover what it means to safeguard the well being of your school and your students, both domestic and international.
Attend this workshop to learn how to identify and mitigate your school’s risk, understand the needs of international families, and support faculty and staff in ensuring success for all students.
