Abstract

Problem Statement: Recent decades have witnessed remarkable increases in the number of international students seeking educational opportunities outside of their countries of origin. Increasing numbers of students with diverse cultural backgrounds pose challenges to existing student personnel services at contemporary university campuses. Studies investigating the needs and attitudes of these students can guide effective service delivery to this population. To date, a great deal of research with international students has focused on undergraduate students. It is essential to explore the needs and attitudes of international graduate students in order to develop effective interventions.
