Intersectionality in Marketing and Recruiting: Defining “Underrepresented” in Study Abroad

When thinking about defining underrepresented groups from an institutional context:

  • Why do we need to define them?
  • Why is it important to our office/organizations and what we do?

What happens when we define these groups of students?

  • How do these definitions impact the goals to improve diversity and inclusion in education abroad?
  • Do our definitions include and/or exclude anyone? If so, who and why?

How has the process of defining these groups impacted resource allocation at your institution?

  • How has it impacted program design at your institution?
    What data do you, and your institution gather regarding student identities?
  • How is this reflected in your office’s (and institution’s) mission statement and values?
