The events of September 11 didn't just become another historical event in U.S. history—it also dramatically changed the work of international student and scholar advisors. Quite possibly, it has altered the profession for years to come. The establishment of the Department of Homeland Security brought with it the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS), a national database that tracks international students and scholars throughout their stay in the United States. Using the results of a national NAFSA-sponsored study (and co-sponsored by Office of International Programs and Faculty Development at the University of Missouri-Columbia) on the impact of SEVIS, this report reveals how the profession has changed due to a greater emphasis on data collection and reporting, how interaction with government agencies has escalated, how the perception of the significance of education abroad offices has risen on college campus and finally, how all of these factors affect the workload and job satisfaction of international student and scholar advisors today.
