Bound et al. find declining enrollment of students from abroad may threaten affordability, quality of US public universities
"Fewer international students could become a problem for U.S. universities" - The Hill. 7/28/2018.
Recent research by John Bound, Breno Braga, Gaurav Khanna, and Sarah Turner indicates that recent declining enrollment of international students in US universities may hurt public universities. Their analyses show that the relatively high tuition-paying students from abroad have helped public universities weather state budget cuts, which has helped keep tuition affordable for local residents and maintained the quality of the institutions.
