But in the US, we can’t use the word “workforce” in discussions about degree-seeking and English language students. What can we do in the US to open up hearts and minds to policy changes that reflect what is being (has been) accepted worldwide? What can we do as individuals? Associations? Institutions?

CIEE offers a solution for institutions looking to retain and engage international students who cannot make it in to the US. We've partnered with about 10 US institutions to host over 2,000 Chinese students in Shanghai during 2020/21. We can accommodate students in other CIEE destinations around the world, as well. Commitments for Shanghai must be made by end of May. www.ciee.org/custominternational TDandrea@ciee.org
