Fort Wayne, Ind.—As part of efforts to increase international enrollment, Indiana Tech has entered an agreement with the Foundation for International Education to recruit students from China.
“Enrolling more students from around the world creates a more diverse campus community, which better reflects the global marketplace in which our graduates will be working,” said Dr. Dennis J. Gayle, vice president for academic affairs. “This agreement is the first of many steps we are taking to broaden our international presence.”
The Foundation for International Education (FIE) will recruit transfer students who have completed three years of post-secondary education in China and wish to pursue a bachelor’s degree at Indiana Tech. FIE also will help identify qualified high school graduates with a similar interest, as well as potential partner universities for Indiana Tech. Under the terms of the agreement, FIE will be Indiana Tech’s sole representative in China for an initial, renewable period of 18 months.
Indiana Tech plans to recruit international students from a variety of countries by establishing articulation partnerships with colleges, developing recruitment agency agreements, and arranging exchange agreements with higher education institutions abroad. Such exchange agreements are intended to increase the university’s international enrollment, while also creating more study abroad opportunities for Indiana Tech students.
