For more information, please visit: SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY (NY) SOCIOLOGY PROFESSOR LOOKS AT THE INTERNATIONAL STUDENT EXPERIENCE When Associate Professor Yingyi Ma arrived on campus in 2006 to teach, she noticed few international students from China at the undergraduate level. Since then, at SU and other universities, a change has been occurring. “Many universities, especially public universities, are recruiting more international students from Asia,” Ma says. The number of international students is as high as 10 percent or more of undergraduates at some universities. Those observations have led to her latest research and a purpose in helping institutions think about the best experience for international students.
