Session I: Overview of AIDE Roadmap and Health & Safety - Guideline Nine

Do diverse students face unique health and safety risks while studying abroad? If so, what can advisors do to help them reduce these risks? This section focuses on how considerations for diversity are included in a study abroad office’s overall health and safety plan. These considerations, which may include mental health, racism/discrimination, sexual behavior, and the role that culture and identity play in diverse students’ overall experience, have implications for supporting diverse students before and during their study abroad experience.

Session II: Re-Entry Programming & Evaluation - Guideline Eleven

When students participate in study abroad programs, they have experiences and stories that
can be life changing. It may be helpful for these students to meet with professionals and students who have had similar experience to debrief, share, and exchange ideas on next steps.
While re-entry may appear to be of minor importance compared to other areas of study abroad planning and advising, students – especially diverse students – may find re-entry advising, support, and programming helpful in processing international experiences and to build upon the skills developed abroad.
