Together, we celebrated the 2016 International Education Week with the release of the latest<span style="font-style: italic;"> Open Doors</span> data on student mobility. For IIE team members, and for most of you too, every week is about international education and our work is needed now more than ever. IIE remains committed to advancing international education and access to education. Our core values of integrity, global awareness, collaboration, professionalism, excellence, and service, will continue to guide all that we do. Throughout nearly a century of surveying campuses, IIE&rsquo;s <span style="font-style: italic;">Open Doors </span>Report has documented that U.S. campuses have consistently welcomed international students from all walks of life and locations. Students choose U.S. higher education as an investment in their future because of its high quality and diversity of opportunity, and we believe they will continue to do so.&nbsp;</div> <div><br /> </div> <div>Across from our headquarters building at United Nations Plaza in New York are the flags of all the member countries of the UN. We work with most of those countries and have family and friends in many. As in our nation, change is a constant in all of them. What doesn&rsquo;t change is how we work together: with a spirit of compassion, hope and determination. We would like to thank the entire international education community for all that you do, every day, and your steadfast dedication to our shared vision.</div> </p> 11/29/2016 1:40:10 PM http://www.naylornetwork.com/iie-nwl/articles/index-v4.asp?aid=413314&amp;issueID=56236 Open Doors 2016 Report on International Educational Exchange Released http://www.naylornetwork.com/iie-nwl/articles/index-v4.asp?aid=413354&issueID=56236 <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=http://www.naylornetwork.com/iie-nwl/newsletter-v2.asp?issueID=56236>November 30, 2016</a> -- <em>News</em></strong><br /> <div><span style="font-weight: bold;"><a href="http://www.iie.org/Who-We-Are/News-and-Events/Press-Center/Press-Releases/2016/2016-11-14-Open-Doors-Data" target="_blank">Read the Press Release</a> | <a href="http://www.iie.org/Research-and-Publications/Publications-and-Reports/IIE-Bookstore/Open-Doors-2016" target="_blank">Pre-Order the Print Publication</a></span></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>IIE, together with the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, released the <a href="http://www.iie.org/opendoors" target="_blank">latest news</a> on international students in the United States and U.S. students studying abroad in the 2016<span style="font-style: italic;"> Open Doors&reg; Report on International Educational Exchange </span>on November 14. The number of international students at U.S. colleges and universities surpassed one million for the first time during the 2015-16 academic year - an increase of seven percent from the previous year marks a new high, and brings the representation of international learners to a five percent of the total student population at U.S. institutions. <span style="font-style: italic;">Open Doors </span>also reports that more than 313,000 U.S. students received credit last year for study abroad during 2014-15, an increase of nearly three percent over the previous year and an increasing number of U.S. students - over 22,000 in 2014-15 - participated in non-credit work, internships, and volunteering abroad to gain practical skills. The <span style="font-style: italic;">Open Doors</span> findings reflect that students study abroad in part to gain international experience that can be applied in their careers. These findings were the subject of hundreds of <a href="http://www.iie.org/Who-We-Are/News-and-Events/Press-Center/Recent-Headlines" target="_blank">news articles</a> in the United States and around the world. IIE and ECA held a briefing and discussion of the new findings at the National Press Club in Washington DC.

"There are so many unknowns right now," Bhandari said. "There&rsquo;s of course the doom and gloom, the predictions that are being made about how this might negatively affect student mobility, but I think there may be some other ways to look at this. What we may actually see is there may be more opportunities for students outside of Europe. Given the currency fluctuations and the devaluation of the pound, we may actually see more international students from non-EU countries - including from the U.S. - considering going to the UK."</div> </p> 7/5/2016 1:09:59 PM http://www.naylornetwork.com/iie-nwl/articles/index-v4.asp?aid=386759&amp;issueID=45966 July 2016 Global Innovation Initiative Spotlight http://www.naylornetwork.com/iie-nwl/articles/index-v4.asp?aid=386771&issueID=45966 <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=http://www.naylornetwork.com/iie-nwl/newsletter-v2.asp?issueID=45966>July 6, 2016</a> -- <em>News</em></strong><br /> <p>This month's Global Innovation Initiative Spotlight is the University of Rhode Island.
