Content Description

During the 1970s, Northeastern University worked to make the University more a part of the international community. Many students held co-op jobs in foreign countries and Northeastern University staff went abroad to recruit, teach or conduct research. In addition, Northeastern experienced an increase in international student enrollment. Because of the increasing number of international students, the Office of Student Affairs employed a Foreign Student Advisor and expanded services, the goal of which was to ensure a positive experience. In 1975, the International Student Office separated from the Student Center to become a distinct unit. The newly separated International Students Office provided services, educational programs, and social events; helped the university understand their needs; and served as a liaison to international student sponsors, such as the Latin American Scholarship Program for American Universities, and to American agencies, international agencies, and foreign and domestic governments. The International Student Office provided seminars on topics such as taxes, employment, and immigration and worked to ensure students had the appropriate papers to study or work in this country. The International Student Office also hosted activities for international students and others students on campus, such as International Week, which began in 1978. In 2002, the International Student Office and its duties were subsumed by International Student & Scholar Institute. The collection consists of material from a vertical file on the International Student Office/International Student and Scholar Institute. Records include brochures, memoranda, reports and a list of visiting foreign faculty and scholars. The collection is unprocessed. 46/4 Accessioned 2015 Jul 06.
