The Global Impact Exchange quarterly publication serves to advance domestic and international conversations around diversity, inclusion, and equity in global education with respect to the thematic focus identified each quarter.
Diversity Abroad welcomes submissions for the Winter 2020 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.
Fostering Exchange Across Difference: Identity & The International Student Experience
International and Exchange students contribute to the diversity of perspectives on our campuses and are integral to campus internationalization efforts, all while serving as ambassadors of their countries. Furthermore, the opportunity to study in a foreign country as an International and Exchange student has the potential to significantly impact students personally and professionally, providing access to lifelong global networks, language acquisition, amongst countless other benefits. How can International Education professionals work with inbound international students to facilitate meaningful global exchanges across the full range of diverse perspectives represented on our campuses and within our communities in the US and abroad? What is our approach in orienting incoming international and exchange students to local realities around race, LGBTQ identities, socioeconomic class, and other diversity-related topics, both from an academic perspective and an interpersonal perspective, to ensure students are equipped with the knowledge and tools to effectively navigate these realities.
