INTERNATIONALIZING THE CAMPUS RESOURCES Bringing International Students to Your Campus 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. An ever-greater number 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 (IIE) 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/internationalization. IIE-Administered Programs Fulbright Foreign Student Program Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, the Fulbright Foreign Student Program brings citizens of other countries to the United States for master’s degrees or Ph.D. study at U.S. universities or other appropriate institutions. The program has brought some of the world’s finest minds to U.S. campuses and offers program participants insight into U.S. society and values. Foreign students apply for Fulbright grants through the bi-national Fulbright Commission/Foundation or the U.S. Embassy in their home countries.
