Get Out of My Way! Building Inclusive Study Abroad Experiences for Students with Disabilities

Many study abroad professionals don’t fully understand what’s unique about studying abroad with a disability. In turn, they’re left to guess why some students don’t participate, or worse, get in the student’s way. Participants in this session will workshop the entire study abroad process from the perspective of a student with a disability by continuously asking, “is our approach student-centered?”

Exploring the process and the relationship with campus partners and providers will provide participants with the tools needed to build a culture of inclusion for all students to study abroad at their institution.
