Resources for Supporting Diversity and Inclusion in Education Abroad


The NAFSA Board of Directors passed a resolution on diversity to guide its work and the work of NAFSA leadership groups. NAFSA has since continued to commit resources to addressing diversity and underrepresentation in Education Abroad, including the creation of the Education Abroad Knowledge Community (EA KC) Diversity and Inclusion in Education Abroad Subcommittee.

Diversity/Underrepresentation in education abroad refers to student populations that are not highly represented. Below are highlighted resources for some of these groups:

Diversity Expertise Log

The Diversity Expertise Log is a central repository of individuals, organizations and/or programs with expertise or a passion for addressing one or more areas of diversity and inclusion in education abroad. The goal of the log is to provide a resource for the field of education abroad to help identify best practices, models of innovation, potential co-presenters or co-collaborators, and to connect people and ideas.

Anyone is welcome to join the log by completing this form.
