Session I: Overview of AIDE Roadmap and Diversity & Guideline Six | Inclusive Student Advising

Student advising is a critical component of a student’s international experience. It can often be the case that students from diverse backgrounds have faced a different set of challenges in accessing study abroad; these students make up a population that may require different advising and support systems to make study abroad feasible. It is essential that students have the information they need to prepare to for study abroad, actively engage while they are abroad, and reflect on their experiences when they return. This information is not only important for the student who will be abroad, but also for the education abroad professionals who will be supporting them in their endeavors.

Session II: Guideline Nine | Health & Safety

Health and safety are critical concerns for institutions as they prepare students for education abroad and support them while they are abroad. It is important to consider issues of diversity when developing health and safety policies, procedures, and advising strategies. This section focuses on factors that should be considered when developing health and safety protocols, such as mental health, racism/discrimination, sexual behavior, and the role of culture and identity.
