Trump administration causes concern for growing international student population - Jarrett Carter, Education Dive

The New York Times reports there is growing concern among international students studying in the United States as anti-immigrant and minority sentiment increases on predominantly white college and university campuses. Students who have seen coverage of Donald Trump's presidential campaign and incidents on campuses nationwide are considering other nations for college study, despite international student enrollment surpassing 1 million in 2015. Canadian institutions say they have seen a massive increase in web traffic and applications in the days following the presidential election, but caution that it's too early to tell what impact it will actually have on enrollment or transfers. http://www.educationdive.com/news/trump-administration-causes-concern-for-growing-international-student-popul/430754/
