To understand how to expand education abroad opportunities, we need to understand who is not going abroad. Presenters will share what they've done (or are doing) to expand participation with respect to the barriers of cost, curriculum, and culture. Participants will be invited to share best practices on how to change perception and make study abroad – academic study, work, or internships – more accessible. Case studies will include the Clemson Engineers for Developing Countries (CEDC) Haiti Initiative, an innovative student-directed program; Susquehanna University, which made study away a curricular requirement; and Medgar Evers College, the only Predominantly Black College (PBI) in the City University of New York, will explain how a one-person office has increased the numbers of underrepresented students going abroad.
