Abstract

This study explores university faculty members' perspectives on the strengths and challenges of international students in the United States, as well as their own challenges in teaching international students. It also investigates faculty member's practices in making instructional and other accommodations for international students, and probes their knowledge of resources that might be helpful to international students who struggle academically. The study reveals that faculty members typically do not have different methods of working with international students than with domestic students and have limited awareness of resources on campus that might be helpful to international students.
