To the Faculty or Staff Member:
The National Student Exchange (NSE) provides students with the opportunity to attend another member university within the United States, Canada, Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands for a single term or an academic year. Students participate in NSE to take advantage of the unique geographic, cultural, and academic characteristics of institutions and/or regions.
In making decisions on the appropriateness of a student's participation in the exchange, we need to know about their motivation, adaptability, academic skills, and those personal qualities that will give students the ability to benefit fully from the exchange experience. While we will appreciate any observations that will assist us in evaluating the present applicant, of special interest are qualities such as competence, independence, assertiveness, resourcefulness, quality of performance, confidence, social skills, open-mindedness, and integrity.
