Abstract

What do China, Saudi Arabia, Japan, South Korea, and India have in common? They're the five leading countries of origin for international college and university students in Oregon. Currently there are over 10,000 international higher education students in the state and the number is expected to grow. In this session you will get an introduction to the academic culture of the five mentioned countries, discuss the rewards and challenges of working with international students, and see how OSU and PSU Libraries are connecting with these students.
