Purpose of the Study • Draw attention to the paucity of statistical data on minorities in international education • Stimulate an empirical analysis based on collection and interpretation of statistical data • inspire college administrators to strengthen their institutional commitment to increasing minority participation in international and foreign area studies

  8. Paucity of Literature: A Systemic Problem • Extracting statistical data related to minority enrollment • Review of selected statistical data: NCES, ACE, IIE • Data related to study abroad and foreign languages • Data related to international studies and area studies

  9. Observations • Absence of category for international education • Difficulty in extracting minority enrollment in international education
