The 2017 conference marks the 10 year anniversary of Diversity Abroad! This milestone provides an opportunity for the international education community to celebrate the progress we’ve made in expanding access and support for diverse and underrepresented students, as we continue to strengthen our resolve to address the inequities that persist. The Diversity Abroad Annual Conference — along with the Global Student Leadership Summit & the MSI Global Education Summit — constitutes the most comprehensive national forum on issues of access, diversity, equity, and inclusion in global education.
As part of Diversity Abroad’s commitment to building capacity for study abroad and comprehensive internationalization at minority serving institutions, Diversity Abroad will host the 2nd Annual MSI Global Education Summit geared towards academics, practitioners, and administrators at Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) who are working to internationalize their campuses. The MSI Global Education Summit is designed to enhance the institutional capacity of MSIs to integrate international education efforts into the current campus climate. The 2017 MSI Global Education Summit will be held March 19 & 20, 2017 in Minneapolis, MN just prior to the 5th Annual Diversity Abroad Conference.
The Global Student Leadership Summit is an opportunity for Diversity Abroad to support of diverse alumni of international programs. In its 3rd year, the 2017 Global Student Leadership Summit (GSLS) will attract dozens of diverse and underrepresented students who have studied, interned, volunteered or worked abroad to focus on the skills essential to being a successful leader in a diverse and global society. Students will participate in hands-on student leadership sessions, engage in critical dialogue, establish and maintain relationships with like-minded student leaders, and connect with professionals from higher education, the public and private sector. Participation in GSLS will helps students leader development and strengthen important skills such as: self-awareness, communication, team building, embracing diversity & difference and more.
