Abstract

This chapter calls for rethinking education across borders by examining the North American international student academic experience with particular focus on enhancing student satisfaction and promising teaching practices, and increasing the faculty role in campus internationalization. To meet our goals of achieving diversity, inclusivity, and internationalization within an increasingly challenged political and socio-economic context, we must turn our attention to enhancing the international student academic experience. An important first step involves paying more attention to the international student success factors along with satisfaction of international students within the classroom and across the student experience. Additional institutional actions for enhancing the international student academic experience institutions are suggested.
