How do we ensure diversity, equity and inclusion as we recruit and attract future U.S. student study abroad participants and facilitate an overall empowering experience? This webinar focuses on the importance of how prepared we are, as international educators, to encourage incoming and outgoing students and scholars to reflect on their identity, the local environment and how to navigate an international context that may be distinctly different. This webinar also focuses on practical steps to develop international offerings in an inclusive manner through intentional marketing, comprehensive advising, and tailored student support for Americans studying abroad.

This webinar is part of the "Internationalization of Higher Education in the COVID-19 Era" series jointly organized by the Department of State’s USA Study Abroad branch, the Fulbright Finland Foundation, and the Association of International Education Administrators (AIEA). These activities support U.S. study abroad and are funded  by the U.S. Government through a Study Abroad Engagement Grant from USA Study Abroad within the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, U.S. Department of State.

Guest Speakers:

  • Amy Henry, Executive Director of International Education, Georgia Institute of Technology
  • Tonija Hope Navas, Director, Ralph J. Bunche International Affairs Center, Howard University
