Section #1: Overview of AIDE Roadmap & Guideline Three
Developing partnerships across campus units can provide important support to education abroad offices not only to increase outreach to diverse student populations, but also to better understand the unique challenges diverse students may encounter in accessing and participating in study abroad. Additionally, engaging administrators and faculty in conversations about diversifying study abroad participation can be a key component to developing campus-wide buy-in for the importance of studying abroad for all students. 

Section #2: Case Study 
Participants will engage in a simulation activity that approximates an on-going administrative conundrum relating to fostering inclusive excellence in international education. The core issues in this scenario center around the challenges of working with faculty, engaging with partners, handling a public relations controversy, and providing reflective re-entry advising.
