Abstract
The Challenge of Growth, A significant and increasing number of international students are seeking postsecondary education in the United States. According to the Open Doors report (Institute of International Education (IIE) 2011), over academic year 2010–11, the number of international students at colleges and universities has increased by five percent. There are now 32 percent more international students studying at US colleges and universities than there were just a decade ago, for a total of 764,495 in academic year 2011–12. Although the number of international students is growing in general, China represents a country with extreme growth. According to the Open Doors data, the total number of Chinese international students was 194,029—25.4 percent of the total number of international students globally and a 23.1 percent increase compared with the previous academic year (IIE 2012).
