The international migration of students and faculty has rapidly increased over the past fifty years, and one of the major recipients of international scholars is the United States. This book brings together recent scholarship from an international team of academics and experienced practitioners on international students and faculty in the US, considering migration patterns, actual scholar experiences and adaptation challenges, and the role that international students and faculty play in broader internationalization and diversity agendas within US higher education. Further, past understandings of 'brain drain' are insufficient for understanding the transnational and often multi-directional flows of academic migrants today. This volume updates and advances the conversation by presenting a more nuanced understanding of academic migration patterns, and outlines what decision-making will be essential if the opportunities presented by these cross-border flows are to be realized.
