IIE PROGRAM PROFILE Seven Resources for Bringing International Students to U.S. Campuses By Clare Banks U.S. COLLEGES AND universities are increasingly recognizing campus internationalization not only as a key component of their students’ educations but also as an important strategy for institutional growth and development. Greater numbers of institutions are recruiting international students, opening international student offices, including internationalization and global education in their mission statements, and establishing partnerships with institutions overseas. The Institute of International Education administers a wealth of programs and provides a variety of services and resources to help U.S. colleges and universities develop and implement their strategies for greater campus internationalization. These resources, as well as information on other programs and services, can be accessed at www.iie.org. 2. Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant Program (FLTA) Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, the FLTA Program enables young educators to refine their teaching skills, increase their English language proficiency, and extend their knowledge of the cultures and customs of the United States while engaging in non-degree studies at accredited postsecondary U.S. educational institutions.
