Session I: Overview of AID Roadmap & Guideline Five | Outreach, Marketing, and Recruitment

When recruiting, marketing, and conducting outreach to students in various forms, it is important to consider how these methods relate to students of diverse backgrounds. These students may sometimes have interests/concerns that are not clearly satisfied through existing efforts. This section therefore examines what the education abroad office does to outreach, recruit, and market study abroad to students from diverse backgrounds.

Session II: Guideline Six | 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.
