Inclusive Membership: Increasing Global Learning Experiences for Underrepresented Students
Study abroad provides an opportunity for self-exploration and intercultural awareness. Navigating a new environment and experiencing a new culture fosters a sense of globalization and a love for travel. Unfortunately, many minority students have only a passing knowledge of other cultures based on direct contact, while their counterparts immerse themselves in other languages and cultures through study abroad programs. This session will provide innovative ways to create a more inclusive environment in order to increase the number of underrepresented students that engage in study abroad.
