1 Global Education Office University of New Mexico MSC , Mesa Vista Hall, Rm Tel , Fax , geo.unm.edu Report on International Students, Scholars and Study Abroad Programs at UNM Mission Statement The Global Education Office provides leadership for UNM s global mission in the areas of international student and scholar services, study abroad, exchange programs, intensive English language instruction and faculty and student Fulbright opportunities. International Admissions was added to the division in October, 2012 and has begun developing a targeted international recruitment strategy. GEO is involved with special international initiatives at UNM including scholarships and special programs. Other activities of GEO involve linking the international population with the campus and Albuquerque community, planning activities and events, assisting international students and scholars in their transition to life in New Mexico, and providing the same assistance to domestic students embarking on a study abroad experience.

4 International Student Statistics Fall 2017 International Statistics Background Information These statistics represent a snapshot of the international student population at the University of New Mexico taken in the Fall 2017 semester and are largely the same as those reported to Open Doors, the national survey published by the Institute of International Education (IIE). For purposes of this report International students includes 4 groups enrolled at UNM for the fall 2017 semester coming from abroad: 1) academic degree-seeking students on non-immigrant visas, 2) all intensive English students enrolled in the UNM CELAC program, 3) all full-time exchange/guest students here for a regular UNM semester pursuant to an agreement, and 4) non-degree certificate program students. Short-term program students who are not at UNM for a regular semester are not included in this report. Each student is only counted in one group in this report. For example, if a student is enrolled primarily as an Exchange/Guest student, but is taking intensive English classes, she is only included in the Exchange numbers and not in the intensive English numbers. Students on practical training are shown in the first chart only. These students have been authorized by an international advisor at UNM to engage in work in their field following completion of their program of study. Practical training students are still on F or J visas sponsored by UNM, but are typically no longer attending UNM as full-time students. Please note that these practical training students are not included in any other statistics in this report. A separate report on international students newly enrolling for Fall 2017 can be requested from the Global Education Office or viewed on our website at: geo.unm.edu.
