The United States is the leading higher education destination for students around the world. The knowledge and skills international students develop on U.S. campuses prepare them to become the next generation of world leaders who can work across languages, cultures, and borders to solve shared global challenges. According to the Institute for International Education’s Open Doors Report, the number of international students in the U.S. increased by seven percent to a record high of 886,052 in 2013-2014.
