Overview of AIDE Roadmap & Guideline Two | Diversity and Inclusion Strategy

It is essential for individual offices and campus units to have a plan in place that describes that
office’s specific goals and approaches to recruiting, serving, and retaining students throughout their experience with the education abroad office and in their programs. This section seeks to identify ways in which diversity issues are integrated into office-wide strategies to attract and serve students looking to study abroad.


Guideline Eight | Inclusive Curriculum & Programming

There are numerous organizations and programs that send students abroad. In many cases, institutions work with third- party providers and organizations to send their students to different parts of the world, while others create home-institution programs. It is equally important to consider issues of diversity when developing and administering home-institution programs and when working with third-party provider programs. This section focuses on the factors that a study abroad office considers when developing new programming and partnering with outside providers or organizations to administer programs.



Case Study: Pitzer College

Within the context of Study Abroad and the Institute of Global and Local Study faculty, staff and students will serve on a panel that facilitates dialogue on what Diversity in Action locally and globally looks like at Pitzer College. The focus is on student participation and curriculum development.
 

Who Should Attend?

Intended for professionals committed to developing the skills and expertise needed to increase capacity and serve more diverse student populations in education abroad, this high-impact training will focus on developing a diversity & inclusion strategy and implementing inclusive curriculum & programming.
