Minority Serving Institution Global Education Summit

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 3rd 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 2018 MSI Global Education Summit will be held April 7 & 8 in Miami, FL just prior to the 6th Annual Diversity Abroad Conference.


As international education becomes more ingrained into the fabric of higher education, many Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) are engaged in innovative activities to ensure their students have the skills and knowledge to be successful in the global market. This track explores innovative practices, research, program models and current trends from colleagues at MSIs or those who partner with MSIs on inbound and outbound international education.


  • Create a community of international education professionals from Minority Serving Institutions
  • Connect participants with the resources and tools needed to develop or enhance the effectiveness of their international education office and build capacity to increase global mobility of their students
  • To inspire participants to be active advocates for international education on their campuses


  • Presidents, Provosts, Deans, and other administrators from Minority Serving Institutions
  • Individuals at Minority Serving Institutions who lead or are interested in leading education abroad programs
  • International education and staff in student support services from Minority Serving Institutions
  • Agencies and organizations who are interested in collaborating with Minority Serving Institutions on internationalization efforts
