As University of Montana enrollment dips, international students are the exception - KEILA SZPALLER Missoulian

In a time of dipping enrollment, the number of international students hit a record high last year. In a time of budget cuts, one of the few new positions UM approved is another recruiter for the Office of International Programs. UM seeks students like Ahmed because they help create rich cultural diversity on campus, and a global connection that seeps into the greater community. At a time when budgets are dwindling, the foreign scholars also represent big money. "If you put more dollars into international recruitment, you do get a lot more revenue. You cannot go wrong," said Paulo Zagalo-Melo, director of the Office of International Programs.
