Passport to Engagement: Illuminating the Way for Underrepresented Students in Study Abroad, Highlighting Business-students Case Study

At the University of Cincinnati, a large, public, research university, various units have made strides in supporting and engaging traditionally underrepresented student populations in international experiences. Since the creation of the Business Fellows Canada program, 36% of underrepresented students studying business go on to participate in another study abroad experience as an upperclassman. Presenters will discuss strategies used to create a culture of study abroad. Attendees of this session will: identify barriers to racially diverse students participating in study abroad; understand strategies undertaken by various units at University of Cincinnati to increase underrepresented student participation and; determine action steps to increase participation of underrepresented students.
