About this book

Introduction

Following a brief review of the historical background, Higher Education Exchange between America and the Middle East in the Twenty-First Century continues the higher education story with the events of 9/11. It describes the changes in US immigration policy and the implementation of student tracking systems, and their subsequent impact on Middle Eastern enrollments in US colleges and universities. Bevis also provides an overview of American study abroad in the Middle East, a chapter on Middle Eastern leaders who were schooled in America, an update on current enrollments, and a discussion of issues and trends from respected professionals in the field as we approach mid-century.
