Access, Inclusion, Diversity (AID) Roadmap

Diversity Abroad's AID Roadmap is both a set of diversity and inclusive good practice guidelines as well as an intensive self-assessment tool that is designed to help education abroad offices document and assess their diversity and inclusion practices, and serve as a guide for implementing policies and practices that will help offices achieve their diversity and inclusion goals. The AID Roadmap is available to Diversity Abroad Network Members.

AID Resource Library (Member Access)

Complementing the AID Roadmap, the AID Resource Library is a compilation of articles, presentations, resources, trainings and other tools that are essential for higher education institutions and organizations to reach their diversity and inclusive goals for international education.

Guideline Five | Outreach, Marketing, and Recruitment
