Study Abroad as a Public Good: Identifying and Enhancing Students’ Professional Growth Through International Experience
Underrepresented college students seek a return on their undergraduate education investment and place high value on experiences that bolster employability. In this session, participants will reflect upon career-enhancing opportunities available in study abroad and global internships and discover strategies to help students take advantage of these resume-boosting opportunities. The session will also cover methods to enhance equity and extend global education opportunities to students traditionally underrepresented in study or internships abroad.
