Fall 2022 Edition: The Power of Collaboration to Advance Equity and Inclusion in Global Education

Too often, the responsibility of providing inclusive support for students falls on a single office, person, and/or faculty member. While many practitioners in international education and exchange recognize and vocalize the importance of developing collaborative partnerships across campus and/or an organization, collaboration across institutional/organizational units is either not common practice or cursory. The articles in the Fall 2022 edition address some of the following questions: How can we harness the power of collaboration across units to advance equity and inclusion within global education? How can support for international students be enhanced with thoughtful partnerships developed within our institutions and local communities? How might global education organizations coordinate across departments to ensure inclusive practices from advising to curriculum of course offerings?

Note: This publication is publicly accessible. Viewing is optimal when using a pdf reader.

Winter 2023 Call for Article Submissions

Diversity Abroad welcomes submissions for the Winter 2023 edition of The Global Impact Exchange: A Quarterly Publication of Diversity Abroad. Article submissions can take various forms, including: scholarly articles, opinion pieces, book reviews, student stories, personal narratives, research findings, etc. We encourage contributors who have experience working with diverse and underrepresented groups in global education including racial and ethnic minorities, LGBTQI+, persons with disabilities, religious diversity, high financial need, community college students, and first generation college students. Selected articles will be shared widely through Diversity Abroad communication platforms.



Research points to global education and other thoughtfully designed global experiences as high impact practices correlated with positive outcomes for diverse student populations in higher education. How can educators and administrators more intentionally connect these high impact practices with career planning and trajectory? How can we highlight the assets global education alumni bring to shaping a globally diverse and inclusive workforce, in all sectors and fields? What additional research/scholarship can be developed to inform university practices, as well as professional recruitment, hiring, and development opportunities that support diverse work environments?
