Bridging Diverse Realities and Contexts

Format: Virtual discussion

Description: As higher education campuses across the United States become more committed to supporting initiatives around social and racial justice initiatives, a question remains as to how students are prepared for the widely differing realities they might experience abroad. Join Diversity Abroad's Task Force for Faculty Engagement to discuss how faculty support students in their experiences of identity, diversity, equity, and inclusion abroad. This Community Discussion will bring together students, faculty, and staff to engage in a significant conversation about how we can create real and supportive bridges to ensure a positive learning experience for students as they move between very different realities and contexts of racial and social justices and contexts.
