Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Study Abroad Programs - Part 1

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Study Abroad Programs – Part 1

Dear International Educators,

This month, we will take a closer look at the profound impact that Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) can have on study abroad programs. Given the expansive nature of DEI, we’ve strategically divided this subject into two parts. Part 1, covered in this edition, establishes the foundational principles of DEI in study abroad settings, addressing various individual topics within its scope. Part 2, in the next edition, will extend the dialogue, exploring crucial topics to further enrich the understanding and implementation of DEI in study abroad programs. By staying connected, you’ll gain a deeper understanding and valuable insights for implementing DEI in your study abroad programs. Happy reading!

In the landscape of global education, we’re shining a focused lens on the critical components of DEI and their integration into study abroad programs. Study abroad programs inherently present an unparalleled opportunity for cross-cultural engagement and intellectual exchange. However, to fully capitalize on this potential, it is essential to foster environments that actively promote diversity, ensure equity in access, and cultivate a profound sense of inclusion. By addressing these foundational principles, we aim to transform your study abroad programs from being merely experiential to becoming enriching and transformative.
