Fall 2014 IIE Networker Magazine highlights need for diversity in study abroad

The free interactive flipbook ‘What Will it Take to Double Study Abroad’ is available at this link: http://www.nxtbook.com/naylor/IIEB/IIEB0214/index.php.

According to the Diversity Network news ‘this special edition … highlights current best practices and explores bold new ideas to help IIE reach its Generation Study Abroad commitment—to double the number of Americans who study abroad. The magazine features a breadth of perspectives that reflect the many pieces of the puzzle. Articles focus on high-potential areas of growth in study abroad, including STEM programs, co-curricular programs, community college students, and gap years. Authors range from colleagues in university global offices to those in doctoral programs, not-for-profit associations, and governments. As the ultimate aim of Generation Study Abroad is to assure that every U.S. student has the opportunity to take part in an international experience, an entire section is devoted to views on how to expand diversity in race, ethnicity, gender, and academic disciplines.’
