Diversity in International Education - A Hands-On Workshop Summary Report

Back on September 21st, the American Institute For Foreign Study (AIFS) and Diversity Abroad hosted a unique hands-on workshop focusing on diversity in international education at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. in collaboration with the National Association for Equal Opportunity in Higher Education (NAFEO), the Institute of International Education (IIE) and Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU). This is free workshop was supported by a generous grant provided by the American Institute For Foreign Study (AIFS) Foundation.  Over 100 study abroad leaders from universities, colleges and various organizations attended this workshop. 

The Summary Report from this workshop entitled "Diversity in International Education - A Hands-On Workshop" is now available for download at http://www.aifsabroad.com/advisors/publications.asp

I was honored at the invitation to contribute comparative data on the diversity of higher education and study abroad for this workshop and you can find these data sets in the Summary Report.  While it is a bit outdated (a major update is planned for all my annotated bibliographies post dissertation) you may find interested in an annotated bibliography on underrepresentation in education abroad that I compiled which you can access here.
