Education Abroad Student Experience Survey
A Resource Tool for Institutions Seeking to Understand What Diverse Students Experience Abroad
Historically, at US universities and colleges, students from diverse and underrepresented populations have not had equitable access to the benefits afforded through global learning experiences. The purpose of the Education Abroad Student Experience Survey is for institutions and organizations to learn more about the successes and challenges of historically underserved students in education abroad in order to improve programs, services, and effectively leverage education abroad to support the academic success, interpersonal growth and career readiness of diverse students.
Diversity Abroad will implement a nation-wide survey and produce a snapshot and comprehensive report. The snapshot report will be shared community wide while Diversity Abroad Members will have access to the comprehensive report data.
The Diversity Abroad National Survey will be implemented in the winter/spring each year and results will be published each June.
How to Use The Findings
Institutions/organizations that implement the survey on their campus can share findings with faculty, staff, and administrators to inform them how they could better support students from all backgrounds and identities throughout their education abroad experiences. Data and quotes from this survey can be used for reporting purposes.
National and institutional findings can inform programming, pre-departure training, training for in-country staff, homestay on-boarding, returnee support, allocation of funding to different aspects of the global experience, and more. At the conclusion of the survey implementation institutions and organizations will receive their institution/organization’s aggregated data to use for reporting and research.
Those implementing the Education Abroad Student Experience Survey on their campus will be provided the following resources:
The Education Abroad Student Experience Survey will be available for implementation starting in October 2020. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be notified as soon as it is ready for use.
