  <dc:description>International student mobility has grown significantly in recent years, with

over 4.1 million students in 2013 who studied abroad around the world

(Institute of International Education [IIE], 2016). With the changes in

student demographics and increased mobility, student affairs professionals

are in a unique role to support international student transition and success.

Unfortunately, current research and practice in higher education tends to

place a high level of responsibility on the international student to

successfully transition to a new campus environment or places the

responsibility on the international student affairs/student services office to

solely work with these students. Given the multi-faceted needs of

international students, we argue that it is critical for student affairs

professionals across functional areas to be prepared to support this diverse

population.</dc:description>
