Intercultural Sensitivity in Foreign Student Advising
Аннотация:Despite the central role that intercultural sensitivity plays in foreign student advising, the intercultural sensitivity of foreign student advisors has never been previously been studied. The role of foreign student advisor at U.S. colleges and universities has changed dramatically since September 11th, 2001, and Jef Davis'' ground-breaking research examines how pervasive ethnocentrism has become as the profession has been gradually co-opted by the Department of Homeland Security. Davis also challenges many common beliefs about cultural sensitivity, including which experiences and personal qualities are actually associated with intercultural competence—and those that are not. This book is essential reading for international education professionals, teachers, policy makers, researchers, and others concerned with international and intercultural education.
