We hope to see you out on the road this fall! This year, the team will be presenting at ten NAFSA Regionals on the difficult but important topic of mental health awareness for international students, and we have a fantastic group of co-presenters to bring the topic to life. With alarming numbers of students coping with depression, anxiety disorders and other mental health problems, it’s more important than ever that we spread awareness and guidance.

Also, the Envisage team will be presenting at seven regional conferences on turning student inquiries into enrollments. Many schools are overwhelmed with the number of inquiries they receive from interested students, and aren’t sure exactly what to do with them. Our panelists will share some ideas to help you put a lead nurturing and efficient communication plan into practice.

For-Profits Turn to International Students to Boost Falling Profits

With a high level of government oversight, dropping student enrollments, school closures and downsizing, the for-profit industry is taking a revenue hit. This is why many for-profit schools are looking to diversify and set up shop outside the US. As an example, the Wall Street Journal reported, “DeVry has cut costs, including workforce reductions and shedding some of its locations. DeVry also has been expanding its international presence, most recently with several acquisitions in Brazil.” DeVry’s additional expansion into Europe, Asia and the Caribbean has meant that while their overall revenue is down, their international revenue is up over 15%.
