This lands the country in the 25th place as one of the leading places of origin for students coming to the United States for higher education, according to the 2017 Open Doors Report on International Educational Exchange data released by Institute of International Education (IIE) and US Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. More students around the world are taking advantage of multicultural learning. Data from programs led by faculty who completed CILMAR-sponsored training reveal that their students demonstrated a higher level of development in self-awareness, empathy, openness and curiosity, four key embedded learning outcomes in the university's core curriculum.

"May and summer programming provides students with an opportune moment in their college career to study overseas and gain worldwide experience in their field of study or complete General Education requirements", said Gifty Ako-Adounvo, assistant vice provost for global strategies and worldwide affairs. Beginning with the spring 2018 semester, more than 100 Purdue students will use Sentio Global Competence Certificate as a tool to enhance their intercultural experience.

According to the report, a majority of Bangladeshi students in the USA study at the graduate level.

In 2016-2017, as many as 7,143 students from Bangladesh were studying in the U.S., registering a almost 10% growth from the previous year, a USA report said on Monday. This number also includes recent graduates who obtained employment eligibility in the United States and who are still affiliated with the university.

In the previous three years, the increases have been 8.1 percent, 9.5 percent and 8.7 percent, the Chicago Tribune reported. They're focused in large, diverse states with top colleges like California, New York, Texas, Massachusetts, and IL. Overall, New York University is No. 1 with 17,326 students.

The University of Cincinnati ranked second in the state with 4,013 foreign students.

He cited increased costs to attend USA colleges; competition from schools in other countries, especially the U.K., Canada, Australia and Germany; visa delays or denials in visas; as well as the social and political climate in the US may play a part in fewer enrollments.

Foreign student enrollment at American colleges is down, The New York Times reported.

For the second consecutive year, U.S. colleges and universities hosted more than 1 million worldwide students, thereby reaching 1.08 million.

In Canada and Australia, especially, many colleges saw dramatic increases in applications and in student visas.

Many institutions have responded to the shifting social and political situation through a series of actions, such as alerting students about changes in US policies (65 percent), issuing statements in support of global students (63 percent), and creating opportunities to discuss current USA events (54 percent).
