McNair Research Title: The International Sojourn and University Dynamics: A Cross-Cultural Perspective on International Students

McNair Research Abstract: Focusing on intellectual development over social development has become the dominate philosophy on addressing student development within the international student population. This dominate method on conducting research on international students has produced limited research fixed upon the intellectual dimension of student development. The findings gathered at Eastern Washington University through the Asia University American Program suggest that student development is composed by an intellectual dimension along with a psychosocial dimension. Both components are intrinsically linked and are necessary for a successful international student program that facilitates successful student integration and development. Through understanding the procedures and role that the Asia University American Program provides for the Japanese students during their sojourn experience, more research can be seen as needed in broader areas than the academic achievement lens to understand the student development of international students.
