Publication Date: 2002
Dr. Elijah Akhahenda, of the President's Peace Commission, serves as moderator and introduces Nancy Erickson, the Study Abroad Counselor at Trinity University, and Innessa Stepanenko, the International Student Adviser at Our Lady of the Lake University. The question put to these speakers is why are institutions of higher education internationalizing? Ms. Erickson discusses how studying abroad can change - and challenge - students, universities, educators, and families. Ms. Stepanenko compares the United States' higher education to the Russian higher education, in an attempt to answer why international students want to come to the United States for their education.
