Student mobility is at an all-time high ( IEE Center for Academic Mobility, 2018 ). Yet, little is known on how engaging with international students impacts domestic students. Cody Rosenbarker conducted a qualitative research study to explore how living with an international student impacts the overall mental health and well-being of their American roommate. The study centered around the experiences of six host students (16-22 years old at the time of their experience) who lived in a residence hall with an international student roommate or suite mate. The study explored potential benefits and drawbacks of these experiences for the host students. This study is the first, to our knowledge, to shed light on potential impacts of living with an international students and has the potential to guide practitioners who work with international and domestic students in a residential setting. Join the Commission for Global Dimensions of Student Development and Cody Rosenbarker to learn more about the impact of living with an international student on host students.

Helping International Students Launch their Careers

Commission for Global Dimensions of Student Development
14 November 2018 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm
In 2016/2017, 85% more international students studied at U.S. colleges and universities than a decade ago (Institute of International Education, 2017). International students have unique needs for resources and services from career teams to help them navigate the US and global job markets. This requires a different approach to guide international students through the process of self-authorship in order to realize their full potential as a part of the global workforce. In this webinar, we hope to share insights into how to best serve the growing international population on your campus and support them as they launch their careers.
