Collaboration to Advance Racial Equity Through Education Abroad White Paper

Publication Date: February 2021

This paper’s publication was originally intended to coincide with the March 14-15, 2020 Strategic Leadership Forum set to take place in New Orleans, LA. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak this event was rescheduled for later in fall 2020. Given the impact of COVID-19 and burgeoning focus on diversity, inclusion, and racial equity in education abroad the authors revised portions of this publication.

This publication seeks to capture opportunities for international education leaders to collaborate with their counterparts in diversity, equity, and inclusion units to advance racial equity through education abroad and leverage this high-impact practice to advance student persistence, academic achievement, and post- degree success. While this publication focuses on collaboration between the Chief Diversity Officer (CDO) and the Senior International Officer (SIO) roles, the principles highlighted herein are applicable to other professionals who work in the international education and diversity and inclusion spaces or who support programming from these units.
