How universities are educating international students

Good article from The Chronicle– may be news to some, but feels like old news to me.  At any rate, I’m interested in how other universities are responding to this huge influx of international students.  I can’t wait to compare Old Dominion to K-State.  I was pleased to see the article address the issue of educating the educators. University educators still have no idea what to do with these students, and they often blame intensive English programs.  We should be preparing them to work with international students, not just preparing the students to adjust to a new system.  There are also too many administrators who don’t actually know much about educating students to begin with, but that’s a rant for another day.  The article is only available to subscribers to The Chronicle, but my university subscribes, so I’m good to go.
