For over a decade, Diversity Abroad has led the field toward inclusive excellence in global education. Now more than ever, this work is necessary as we strive to increase student access and participation in global programs, and ensure that the next generation of diverse global leaders are equipped with the skills necessary to excel in our increasingly interconnected world.

AID Roadmap: Comprehensive Assessment for Inclusion in Education Abroad
If we believe that education abroad as a documented high impact practice can be transformational -- personally, professionally, and academically -- for students, then the outcome of our efforts must be that greater access actually leads to greater transformation for all students. How can Education Abroad Offices move beyond the tacit commitment to diversity & inclusion efforts, and develop an inclusive climate that both welcomes students from diverse and underrepresented backgrounds and also effectively supports their successful participation and transformational learning throughout? Stop by the poster session to learn more about Diversity Abroad’s innovative approach to assessing the overall climate of inclusion throughout the education abroad process through the Access, Inclusion, and Diversity (AID) Roadmap.
Diversity Abroad's Passport Tour: An Innovative Practice for Diversity Outreach
Stop by to learn more about the impact of The Passport Tour (TPT), the longest running Student Services program from Diversity Abroad. Now in it’s 9th year, our unique national student outreach tour allows us to directly engage with 2,000+ students across a variety of institution sizes and types in the U.S. Our poster will provide details about TPT, how it is organized, and how you can get involved. We’re excited to also present a creative infographic that breaks down the diversity of students we sought out to engage with during this tour, and to provide further insights into students’ barriers to study abroad; as well as how those barriers are impacted by racial/ethnic identity, financial need, prior family/friend experiences’, and more.
