Written by an international team of academics and experienced practitioners, this volume brings together scholarship on international academic migrants to the United States - the world's top recipient of academic talent. Topics considered include migration patterns, adaptation challenges, and the role that international students and faculty play in broader internationalization and diversity agendas within US higher education. Past understandings of "brain drain" are insufficient to understand the transnational and often multi-directional flows of academic migrants today. Instead, a more nuanced understanding of their migration patterns and decision-making is essential if the opportunities presented by these cross-border flows are to be realized.
