The influx of international students from Asia has caused some in the nation to question whether this creates unfair competition between wealthier international students and middle-class Asian Americans. But officials and students at the University of Iowa said they don’t see this competition and increase in foreign students as being negative.
A new video from UI Admissions highlights the experiences of several international students at the University of Iowa and how they live, learn, work, and play on our campus. The video shows new students what they can expect when coming to Iowa City for their education.
Hoping to reverse that trend, the university spent $115,000 in budget year 2007-08 on international recruitment, including sending staffers to recruiting fairs around the world. That investment has paid off, said Scott King, UI assistant dean of international programs.
In a move to increase its out-of-state and international student enrollment, officials at the University of Iowa are stepping up their global recruitment efforts.
