Scott Andrew Schulz, Jenny J. Lee, Brendan J Cantwell, George McClellan,  and Doug Woodard

Student affairs could potentially play a vital role in the internationalization of colleges and universities, but the extent to which international issues are included in the preparation of future student affairs administrators has remained relatively unknown. As such, a team of researchers sought to investigate the extent of internationalization among student affairs graduate preparation programs in the United States. More specifically, this study was commissioned to reveal: (1) what types of institutions have student affairs graduate preparation programs that are internationalized, (2) the types of international program components being embraced by student affairs graduate preparation programs, and (3) anticipated future trends and factors that inhibit or promote the development of international program components. The findings of this study have implications for future research on internationalization and the preparation of student affairs administrators.
