Currently, half of the student body at MUM is from outside the United States, representing 88 countries. A June 2013 study in the Journal of International Students* showed that high levels of international student peer engagement while in college is a strong contributing factor to significantly higher levels of skills development in:
- Relating well to people from different racial, national, or religious backgrounds,
- Understanding the role of science and technology in society
- Synthesizing and integrating ideas and information
- Ability to question and reexamine personal and societal beliefs.
The research results support the conclusion that students do well when they expand their social networks beyond culturally homogenous groups.
