Recent executive orders and the new political climate in the US are creating a great deal of concern amongst students and families all over the globe. 77% of US institutions reported concerns about Fall 2017 enrollment. This webinar will share data on regional patterns of areas of concern as well as leading practices for international education professionals to address concerns and maximize yield. This 'special edition' webinar was based on the recently released report: Trending Topics Survey: International Applicants for Fall 2017 - Institutional & Applicant Perceptions, an inter-associational collaboration between AACRAO, NACAC, NAFSA, IIE and International ACAC.
