New KU Recruitment Program Being Questioned

Associated Press - April 22, 2014 6:28 pm

Some teachers at the University of Kansas are questioning whether a new program designed to attract hundreds of new international students to the school will be beneficial.

The university plans to begin a KU Academic Accelerator Program in the fall. It is a three-semester program to provide academic, social and language help to international students. The program will be jointly run by the university and a private company called Shorelight Education.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports some professors and students raised concerns about having a private company recruiting students for an economic payoff, and the use of agents for recruiting.

A Shorelight official says agents are only part of the company’s approach to recruitment, and it uses only agents approved by leading agencies.
