  "description": "<p>International student mobility has grown significantly in recent years, with</p>\n\n<p>over 4.1 million students in 2013 who studied abroad around the world</p>\n\n<p>(Institute of International Education [IIE], 2016). With the changes in</p>\n\n<p>student demographics and increased mobility, student affairs professionals</p>\n\n<p>are in a unique role to support international student transition and success.</p>\n\n<p>Unfortunately, current research and practice in higher education tends to</p>\n\n<p>place a high level of responsibility on the international student to</p>\n\n<p>successfully transition to a new campus environment or places the</p>\n\n<p>responsibility on the international student affairs/student services office to</p>\n\n<p>solely work with these students. Given the multi-faceted needs of</p>\n\n<p>international students, we argue that it is critical for student affairs</p>\n\n<p>professionals across functional areas to be prepared to support this diverse</p>\n\n<p>population.</p>",
