Rutgers looks to recruit more
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.
Joanna Regulska, Rutgers' Vice President
for International and Global Affairs, said the
58,000-student university needs to reach outside U.S.
borders to stay relevant. "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.
