Abstract

"Yet, as Tanita Saenkhum aptly explains in Decisions, Agency, and Advising: Key Issues in the Placement of Multilingual Writers into First-year Composition Courses, an increasing number of multilingual students enrolling in U.S. colleges and universities each year has prompted first-year writing programs to adopt a more international perspective, an effort that has resulted in both progress and new challenges. The last few decades have witnessed the globalization of higher education, with U.S. universities establishing partnerships with international universities and even satellite campuses abroad, and an increasing number of international students have come to the U.S. to pursue undergraduate degrees. Even with a slowing down of this number last year, the 2017 Open Doors Report on International Education Exchange revealed that more than one million international students enrolled in U.S. colleges and universities for a second year in a row (Institute of International Education, 2017). Together with U.S.-resident multilingual students, international multilingual students have begun to change the face of first-year composition."
