About the Passport Tour

Diversity Abroad's Passport Tour (TPT) is a nationwide campus-based initiative designed to introduce study abroad resources and opportunities to students, faculty and administrators, particularly from diverse and underrepresented backgrounds.

Since 2008, TPT has visited more than 75 different college campuses across the country. Each campus visit looks different, but can consist of various on-campus outreach initiatives such as tabling at a study abroad fair, hosting information sessions, moderating alumni panels, making classroom visits, and more.

Diversity Abroad is delighted to welcome Daneen Johnson to the team. In her role as the Community Engagement Coordinator, Daneen will be spearheading campus visits with the Passport Tour. Additionally, Diversity Abroad is excited to have 6 Campus Fellows hosting events at and around their campuses throughout the year. 

Wondering where you can connect with the Passport Tour in your area? More details available on the Events Calendar.
