A MESSAGE FROM ALLAN E. GOODMAN, President and Chief Executive Officer, IIE Strategic International Enrollment Management TODAY, MORE THAN three million students Since all campuses function differently, faculty and staff need to tailor IEM strategies to fit their campus cultures. In this issue, faculty and staff from American University, Michigan State University, and the University of Warwick describe IEM models that were successfully implemented to meet the needs of their respective campuses. In this issue, we also celebrate the 10th anniversary of IIE’s Scholar Rescue Fund (SRF). Since our founding in 1919, IIE has been committed to rescuing threatened scholars around the world. IIE launched the Scholar Rescue Fund in 2002 to make scholar rescue a permanent part of our work. Over the past decade, the Scholar Rescue Fund has provided safe haven to 458 scholars from 48 countries. You can read the uplifting stories of ten of these scholars in this issue. IIE is especially grateful to the 265 partner institutions in 40 countries that have welcomed rescued scholars. We are proud to publish a complete list of these institutions on pages 22-23, and we encourage more higher education institutions to join our efforts to assist scholars under threat by becoming host campuses. It is through their support that we can ensure that threatened scholars will be able to continue their important work in safety. ■ study outside their home countries. They come from hundreds of places of origin and pursue courses in all fields of study and at all academic levels. And they contribute immensely to the classrooms, campuses, and communities in their host countries. With more and more higher education institutions seeking to increase the number of international students on their campuses, international enrollment management (IEM) has increasingly become a crucial component of their internationalization strategies. Th is issue of IIENetworker examines a wide range of innovative IEM strategies that colleges, universities, and other organizations have devised and implemented to help recruit, admit and retain international students. Jenny Rickard and Susan Buck Sutton of Bryn Mawr College kick off this issue by sharing best practices that their institution has developed for dealing with the exponential growth of Chinese students on their campus during the past five years. Similarly, Karen K. Edwards of Grinnell College and Mandy Hansen of Northern Arizona University offer practical tips for planning and managing IEM across the campus. 7 http://www.iie.org/iienetworker
