Pre-Conference Workshops

Supporting Students From Asia Through an Equity Lens

Students from Asia account for 70% of the international students and scholars enrolled in U.S. higher education institutions. In light of the increase in anti-Asian racism in the United States, U.S. campuses increasingly are looking to address how they can support their international students from Asia. This workshop will explore the diversity and inclusion lens that students bring with them to the United States as well as unpack the history of AAPI identity in the United States and the role the model minority myth plays in U.S. higher education. Participants will walk away with a greater understanding of how to better serve our Asian international students and strategies for collaborating across campus and with local communities.

How Liberation Pedagogies Can Recenter Global Learning Toward Justice, Accountability, and Healing

Global learning is often predicated on better understanding difference and finding meaningful connections across culture and geography. The problem, though, is that many of us aren’t quite sure how to do this given our own complex identities, the long-standing inequities we travel through, and our fraught political context domestically. This workshop will help us situate global learning within these debates and offer skills and tools for practitioners to practice and take back to their contexts.

Some of the questions we will ask include: Is travel required for global learning? Is global learning inherent with travel? How can postcolonial theories and liberation pedagogies help us grapple with these issues? This workshop will outline key frameworks to help answer these questions and help us get more comfortable with discomfort. Let us speak with more clarity and courage about the complex world we live in and travel through.

Health, Safety and Security in an Unjust World

Risk Management in International Education is typically siloed from initiatives in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. This workshop will bridge that separation by taking a critical look at how health, safety, and security programming (ex: pre-departure orientations; in-country safety briefings; ad hoc risk management) can unintentionally exacerbate bias and stereotyping. Furthermore, this workshop will introduce the concept of psychological safety and why this additional tenant in Risk Management is of particular importance for supporting historically under-represented students.
