Join the Presidents’ Alliance as we celebrate the launch of Rajika Bhandari’s new book, America Calling: A Foreign Student in a Country of Possibility! Dr. Bhandari is an international higher education expert and also serves as a Senior Advisor to the Presidents’ Alliance. Among a list of “most anticipated books for the rest of 2021,” America Calling is both a deeply personal story of Bhandari’s search for her place and voice, but also an unflinching and incisive analysis of the global appeal of a Made-in-America education that is a bridge to America’s successful past and to its future. We will also be joined by international education experts and U.S. higher education leaders as we discuss the path forward for international students in the U.S. as institutions re-open in the fall, and against the backdrop of the new commitment to international education by the Biden-Harris Administration. For institutions on the lookout for their next first year book, take note of this memoir!
