International students comprise a significant portion of the student population at institutions of higher education within the United States, with a number of these students being from countries on the Asian continent. Past research surrounding this population has shown that international students face a unique set of challenges, especially in their transitional phase, in comparison to their domestic peers. This paper focuses on the ways in which Asian international students develop and experience a sense of belonging at Indiana University Bloomington, and provides recommendations for future practice to better foster a sense of belonging and create a culturally relevant environment for this population.
