Abstract or Summary
  • During the 2006/07 academic year, 582,984 international students studied in the United States (Open Doors Study, 2007). Roughly 430,000 of these international students were pursuing Bachelors or Graduate level degrees. Of the international students that complete degrees, most will return to their home country and will be unable to attend alumni events at their alma mater due to their distance from the institution. Some institutions attempt to maintain a strong relationship between alumni and the institution through the work of their international alumni relations office. This study explores the challenges faced by four year American institutions in their attempts to create and maintain international alumni relations programs. A survey instrument was created based on an extensive literature review and informal interviews and dispersed to two groups of alumni professionals at American Institutions. The analysis of the fifty-nine total responses highlights both the challenges and successes associated with international alumni outreach work.
