Outsider Within: Preparing and Supporting Black Students on their Study Abroad Journey
Increasing diversity on college campuses has resulted in an increase in the number of students of color studying abroad. As institutions aim to increase the racial and ethnic diversity of students who go abroad, practitioners must find innovative ways to prepare students for what they may encounter. This session will encourage practitioners to take inclusive excellence beyond numbers and see study abroad through the lens of the Black student. By doing so, strategies will be unpacked that serve underrepresented students and provide them the tools to navigate across differences.
