International Student Barometer

OISS introduced the International Student Barometer (ISB) Survey at UD in academic year 2017-18 as a strategic initiative to help better understand the overall experience of our international students in an effort to improve support services in various university settings. The ISB is considered the most widely-used benchmarking tool for tracking the international student experience globally. A summary of UD's ISB data is presented in an Infographic and Slideshow.
2018 Full and Unit International Student Experience Reports are available to UD employees using CAS login.
