Deadline: March 28, 2014 | Complete Survey Online

The deadline to complete the U.S. Study Abroad survey for the upcoming Open Doors Report is March 28, 2014. The U.S. Study Abroad Survey captures data on U.S. students traveling abroad for academic credit and is part of our annual Open Doors Report on International Educational Exchange. The Open Doors Report, supported by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State, has long been regarded as the authoritative source for statistical data on international student flows to the U.S. IIE’s research team relies on the efforts of dedicated individuals from each U.S. institution to help keep these statistics as current and accurate as possible. 

If you have any questions about the survey, need to update your institution’s contact, or require an extension, please send an email to or call (212) 984-5554.

The spring 2014 IIENetworker magazine, titled "The Impact of Globalization on International Education," is now available as a free interactive flipbook.

Global education, as we understand it today, would be unthinkable without the many forces of globalization—economic, political, social, and cultural. These forces have transformed internationalization in academia from an endeavor centered primarily on sending students abroad to a rich network of multiple institutional activities that can define a college or university’s entire identity. Yet, theories of globalization have been decidedly absent in discussions of international education—and vice versa. This issue of the IIENetworker initiates this discussion by bringing together a variety of scholarship and practical analysis to explore the impact of globalization on the design, implementation, and practice of global education.

This IIENetworker edition benefited from the insight of two guest editors, Jeffrey Peck, Vice Provost for Global Strategies and Dean of the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences at Baruch College CUNY, and Stephen Hanson, Vice Provost for International Affairs at William & Mary.

Call for Papers for the IIENetworker Fall 2014 Issue: "What Will It Take to Double Study Abroad?"

Submission Deadline: May 23, 2014
According to the 2013 Open Doors Report, 295,000 American college students studied abroad for credit and in non-credit programs. This represents only 10 percent of students who graduated with associates or baccalaureate degrees. In today’s increasingly global workplace, the number is far too low. Globalization brings with it the demand for a U.S. workforce that both possesses knowledge of other countries and cultures and is competent in languages other than English. International experiences are among of the best ways students can acquire these global skills. In response to this need, IIE recently launched Generation Study Abroad, which seeks to double the number of U.S. students who study abroad by the end of the decade. The initiative will reach out to educators at all levels and stakeholders in the public and private sectors and to encourage meaningful, innovative action in order to drive up the number of U.S. students who have the opportunity to gain international experience through academic study abroad programs, internships, service learning, and non-credit educational experiences. 
The purpose of this issue of the IIENetworker is to highlight current best practices and to explore bold new ideas to help us reach this ambitious goal.  Proposed articles should examine ways to identify and break down barriers (perceived and real) hindering students from participating in an international experience, such as obstacles related to cost, curriculum, and culture; share successful strategies and best practices in increasing study abroad; or discuss ideas for improving study abroad experiences for students already taking part. Articles on expanding diversity in race and ethnicity, academic disciplines, and gender are strongly encouraged. We also encourage contributions from professionals outside the strictly higher education structure, including those in K-12, language learning, and the private and government sectors. Articles should be between 1000 and 1500 words. 
Please let us know as soon as possible if you plan to submit. The submission deadline for completed articles is May 23, 2014. You will be notified as soon as a publication decision is made.

On February 20, 2014 the Institute of International Education’s Center for Academic Mobility Research held a one-day workshop in the Washington, DC offices on best practices in gathering, interpreting, and using student mobility data. This was the first Project Atlas workshop held in the United States, having been previously organized in Kenya, Mexico, and Brazil. The goal of the workshop was to bring together U.S. and international professionals in higher education to discuss issues around data-driven decision-making about internationalization at the institutional, national and policy levels. 

The workshop included over 50 participants from the United States and eight other countries, from various sectors including researchers, university administrators and colleagues from the diplomatic community. The workshop served to strengthen the capacity of U.S. and global higher education institutions, government agencies and non-governmental organizations to build comprehensive data collection mechanisms for collecting and utilizing student mobility data to inform policy, research, and enrollment management practices. 

Workshop facilitators included Rajika Bhandari, Christine Farrugia, and Raisa Belyavina from IIE as well as five Project Atlas and research partners. A special thank you to Nichole Johnson’s team for their support with the event.
