INSTITUTE OF INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION RELEASES THE 2013 OPEN DOORS REPORT ON INTERNATIONAL EDUCATIONAL EXCHANGE

Recently, the Institutes of International Education (IIE) released its 2013 Open Doors Report on International Educational Exchange. The report, which is published annually by IIE in partnership with the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, identifies important trends in international educational exchanges.
Findings of the Open Doors report were the subject of a briefing in Washington, D.C. on November 12, led by Assistant Secretary of State Evan M. Ryan and IIE President and CEO Allan E. Goodman. Two major findings were the increases in international students coming to the U.S. — up 7 percent to a record high of 819,644 — and American students studying abroad — up 3 percent to a total of 283,332. Open Doors also reports on the number of international scholars at U.S. universities; international students enrolled in pre-academic Intensive English Programs; and on U.S. students studying abroad. During the event, leaders from the international education community discussed other key trends, how economic factors and education policies affect student mobility and also the many ways in which academic exchanges strengthen diplomatic and business relationships throughout the world.
