Last year, Chinese undergraduate enrollments in U.S. colleges and universities outstripped graduate enrollments for the first time ever. The quality of those students’ secondary schooling is directly relevant to their impact and experiences on campus. WENR offers an overview of the good, the bad, and the fly-by-night landscape of China’s international high schools to help institutions better manage their enrollment pipeline and student success.
International student alumni can be an institution’s biggest brand ambassadors, but only if they have a good experience on campus.

With an eye toward improved recruitment, retention, and better student experience, the WES research team examined what works and what doesn’t at campuses across the U.S.
National and institutional policies around the globe explicitly view international students through a short-term financial lens. But as we balance economic imperatives and higher education’s core mission, we must always ask: Can we justify the ethical, academic, and civic tradeoffs we’re making?
