Understanding International Students from Asia in American Universities: Learning and Living Globalization

Ahoefa S. Tshibaka

In this book, the authors and editors suggest that the intensity of globalization is helping to reshape the American Education System. The reshaping of the American educational system is reflected in the number of students the United States accommodates from different parts of the world. With an international student count of 1.8 million; the United States is one of the primary destinations for international students in the world. Interestingly, Chinese, Indian, and South Korean students represent more than half (51%) of the overall number of international students in the United States. However, Asian students combined represent 64.3% of the overall number of international students in America, making them the dominant group of students (Ma & Garcia-Murillo, 2018, p. 1) The book provides important insight on the issue of international student experiences which can be applied as a guide for administrators, faculty, staff and domestic students who are interested in cultivating the ideal environment, where these students not only  add to the diversity of the student population, but also enhance the exchange of ideas, and expand or increase cultural understanding in and out of the classroom
