Global Learning and Career Readiness: Enhancing Education Abroad Access for HBCU Students
In this session, a faculty-student panel will share cross-disciplinary approaches used at an HBCU to enhance students’ access to study abroad. Approaches include: integrating study abroad programs into competency-based professional preparation and curricula; developing international field research programs that enhance the attractiveness of foreign service careers where minorities tend to be underrepresented; and linking study abroad to student engagement initiatives for first-year students. Participants will also examine the success of student-driven strategies to change their landscape as they navigate through study abroad.
