WMU trying To Attract More International Students

The Trump administration could be reducing the ranks of international students at American universities. Among them is Western Michigan University, which currently has about 1,000 such students in Kalamazoo. President Dr. John Dunn tells WKZO News there are important skills students from other cultures can bring.

“If we don’t understand that, then I think we’re going to be in for a very tough future,” Dunn said.

39% of the nation’s universities report they’re seeing a drop in applications from international students. Western has announced a plan to cut tuition for non-resident students by 47% beginning with summer tern in an attempt to attract more international students.
