Getting Real with Diversity Outreach: A Practical Toolkit for Promoting Study Abroad to Underrepresented Students

116 views

Published on

Reaching underrepresented student populations in education abroad is something most universities strive for, but can find difficult to execute in practice. During this session, presenters – who represent the 11th most ethnically diverse university in the U.S. – will help you identify new and creative outlets for outreach to underrepresented populations at your institution. We'll also explore how to foster connections with key departments and identify study abroad program types that draw diverse student participants in the hopes of empowering underrepresented students to overcome actual and perceived barriers to study abroad.
