Resources for Your Week: Data Collection in Education Abroad

The importance of data collection in education abroad is undisputed. It helps us benchmark our progress and advocate for our field and our students. With the March 10 deadline for submission of the Open Doors U.S. Study Abroad Survey fast approaching, we encourage you to do your part, and share your numbers.

New to this? For guidance about data collection and Open Doors in particular, see NAFSA’s FAQs.

The Forum collects data to track the trends and needs of the field and its members biannually in the State of the Field Survey. For those who want to crunch their own numbers, the 2015 dataset was recently released for use by Forum members.

Keep an eye out for the 2017 State of the Field coming to your inbox later this semester.
