Today, Inside Higher Ed posted an article entitled "U.S. Politics and International Education" by Bradley Feuling, chairman and CEO of the Asia Institute. Feuling analyzed historical Open Doors data during several past presidential administrations for both U.S. students studying abroad as well as international students studying in the U.S.
Long-term data provide clear evidence that a
Republican-led administration will play a significant --
and perhaps somewhat surprising --
role in influencing foreign student enrollments and study abroad.
It is a very interesting read and I encourage you to not only read the article but also to comment on what you think the new Trump Administration holds for the field of international education. You can access the "U.S. Politics and International Education" article here.
