seen similar declines in the past, and we can, and
have in the past, recovered," she says.
"Do they have more options and do we have
more competition? Yes. But I believe the United
States still stands out as the leader in global
education," she says.
RIT hasn't seen a decrease in its graduate
enrollments thus far, says Beczak, but they are
prepared to change gears if necessary.
"I've seen a decline in interest in some key areas,
like engineering," she says. "If the trend continues and
enrollment drastically declines, some programs may
be affected and we may have to revise our marketing."
Against the backdrop of increasing competition
from other countries, parents and prospective
students are also asking questions about safety,
whether they will find community, and costs,
Anderson says. For students in Asia, choosing an
institution in Australia, Canada, China, or New
Zealand may seem like a better option.
"There was a period when the United States had it
relatively easy, where international competition was
not nearly as strong as it is now, where governmental
processes were working relatively smoothly," says Bruce
Farnsworth, vice president at the American Council on
Education (ACE)'s Center for Internationalization and
Global Engagement. "There was an unusually positive
period, a confluence of really fortunate events."

"Do they have more options and do
we have more competition? Yes. But
I believe the United States still stands
out as the leader in global education."

"You can't expect an environment like that to last
forever," he says. "Eventually you're going to have more
competition. Eventually you're going to have government
regulation that frustrates you, and you're going to have to
find a way to cope with it if you want to stay in business."

Responses to Changing Winds
While changes in international student admissions
have been seen across the U.S. higher education
landscape, the extent to which each institution feels
the effects, and how it responds, varies.
"To put it bluntly," says Rossitza Wooster, dean of the
graduate school at Portland State University (PSU) in
Oregon, "if you have a Research 1 institution that has a
history of attracting international students, most of them
go there regardless of what the [political] climate is because
they have a very good support network and so forth."
