COVID‐19 Effects on US Higher Education Campuses

COVID-19 Snapshot Survey Series

Written by Dr. Mirka Martel

The Institute of International Education (IIE) is studying the effects of COVID-19 (coronavirus) on global student mobility on U.S. higher education campuses. Our aim in this series is to provide more information about the effects that COVID-19 has had on international student mobility, and the measures U.S. higher education institutions are taking regarding international students currently on campus and those abroad.

The first survey was launched on Feb. 13, 2020, and specifically focuses on the effects of COVID-19 with regard to academic student mobility to and from China. As the COVID-19 outbreak evovles, IIE will administer follow-on surveys to the U.S. higher education community to monitor the unfolding situation and to keep the international education community informed.
