  20. Current recruitment efforts: advertising campaign, on the internet, and with print materials • Participate in recruiting tours in: • Canada • Latin America • Gulf States • Asia • Turkey • Submit several grant applications • Contact Saudi Arabia Cultural Mission • Sign MOU with universities abroad • International Speakers Series Source: International Programs Office

  21. Conclusions • There is a need to create a “critical mass” of international students that will facilitate the recruitment of international students • NMU has a comparative advantage, price-wise, for international students against any other Michigan universities • NMU campus technology, including the laptop program, is very attractive to international students • Location, recreation opportunities, and safety appeals to both students and parents; however, the weather is a concern for some • Number of academic programs is another plus for recruiting international students • MBA program will facilitate international recruitment efforts • Lack of more flights in and out of Marquette is another constraint • Cost of credential evaluations (NMU - $175 against $30 of other universities) increases the initial application expenditure

  22. Recommendations • Continue and increase international recruitment efforts - major results will be seen from the third to fifth year • Continue efforts to establish international exchange agreements • Expand efforts to apply for international grants that include faculty and student exchange • Establish articulation agreements with domestic community colleges with high numbers of international students (i.e., Oakland Community College with 1,200 international students) • Increase the international academic award to the same level as the domestic out-of-state academic award ($2,200 - $3,500)
