Recruitment from other countries is a rising trend in Higher Education as a way to diversify campuses and bring in money to financially strapped institutions.  It’s also become a big business, raising questions about the way in which students are brought in.  We take a look at this practice and how it’s evolving here in the Granite State.

Guests

  • Jim Miller, President of the National Association for College Admission Counseling.
  • Steven Harvey, Director of International Admissions at Southern New Hampshire University.
  • Patrick Van Rooyen, General manager, Navitas USA, which recruits and provides support for international students.

We'll also hear from
