Higher Ed Disruptors: A Comprehensive and Integrated Approach to Challenging a System of Inequities

Through an integrated review and understanding of processes, resources, and partnerships within higher education, the system of inequities that prevents underrepresented students from studying abroad can be challenged. In this session, presenters will discuss the systemic issues within study abroad that deliberately impact access and engagement from historically underserved student populations. Through this lens, traditional ideas will be challenged, and participants will look closely at their understanding of, practices related to, and ability to build systems for increasing diverse student and community engagement. By identifying blind spots, considering nontraditional strategic partnerships, and discussing resource allocation, the systems of inequity in study abroad can be broken down.
