Rutgers looks to recruit more international students.
The list of US colleges and universities re-dedicating their efforts to increase enrollment of international students continues to grow. Rutgers, the state university of New Jersey with 58,000 students and a long history of enrolling foreign students, is stepping up its efforts to increase internationalization. The university is entering into partnerships with foreign universities and increasing the study abroad opportunities for its domestic students, increasing international enrollment by 30 percent over the past five years and almost doubling the number of students that study abroad.

"These days you can't function as an institution without the global connections," Regulska said today from Poland, where she is doing a research project.
