    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;International student mobility has grown significantly in recent years, with&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;over 4.1 million students in 2013 who studied abroad around the world&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;(Institute of International Education [IIE], 2016). With the changes in&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;student demographics and increased mobility, student affairs professionals&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;are in a unique role to support international student transition and success.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Unfortunately, current research and practice in higher education tends to&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;place a high level of responsibility on the international student to&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;successfully transition to a new campus environment or places the&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;responsibility on the international student affairs/student services office to&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;solely work with these students. Given the multi-faceted needs of&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;international students, we argue that it is critical for student affairs&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;professionals across functional areas to be prepared to support this diverse&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;population.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
