It is a well-established fact that universities in the United States are examining processes of expanding into the international market by attracting students from all over the world. This global strategy by U.S. universities and colleges expands their footprint, increases partnerships with international educational and research agencies, and brings cultural diversity to a campus. International student recruiting has also become a good business model for American universities. As a result, U.S. institutions of higher education have committed increasing amounts of resources and infrastructure support in order to attract international students. If higher education entities are motivated in recruiting globally, why should intercollegiate athletics lag behind?
