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?
