Abstract

Although international attention to understanding college student development, learning, and experiences has increased, leading higher education journals do not seem to have kept pace. We examined 8 higher education and student affairs journals (5 from the US, 3 from Europe) from 1998 to 2011. We found overall that 5% of articles addressed internationally focused topics related to student development, learning, and experiences. The most common topics were student learning, outcomes, and adjustment. We make recommendations for researchers, journal editors, and educators to improve the literature that can be used internationally to guide higher education policy and practice in the area of college students.
