Dickinson College fights to make their international students feel welcome from a distance

Dickinson College is fighting to make their international students feel welcome from a distance.

Reported by Education Dive, with the coronavirus pandemic and federal law restricting travel, college leaders are creating virtual and in-person alternatives for their international students unable to return to campus. By partnering with their global partner universities, Dickinson is working to provide in-person course options for their interested international students.

The takeaway? For some institutions, their international student populations make up to 25% of their total enrollment. And a federal policy of “you’re not welcome here” just isn’t a viable option. So it’s ‘get creative’ time.

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
