Title: The American University Meets the Pacific: How the Increasing Enrolllments of Students from Asia are Transforming the American University

Subject(s): Higher Education Asian-American Students multiculturalism Asian Students Globalizing the Campus
Abstract: The project and lecture series are principally interested in the American university as a contact zone in which record levels of international undergraduates, largely from Asia, meet American students whose futures are increasingly impacted by global transformations, the economic and scientific rise of Asia among them. Reflecting the research expertise of the faculty members, the project focuses on China and South Korea, which are also the largest sending countries for international undergraduates at UIUC and in the United States at large. Further, the project focuses on the Colleges of Engineering and Business. Locally and nationally, these are the areas with the greatest international student concentration, and the fields in which Americans most worry that they are losing, or even have lost, global preeminence.
