Promoting Inclusion in Education Abroad offers a combination of research-based chapters and case studies from leading experts on the barriers that disproportionately impact specific groups of students, including: students with disabilities; first-generation college students; undocumented students; racial and ethnic minorities; science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) majors; and males. The authors illuminate the issues that may inhibit education abroad participation, from individual to institutional, and present strategies reflecting a broad range of institutional contexts, resources, and needs. Topics include:
- Making the Case for Inclusion in Education Abroad
- Underrepresentation in Education Abroad
- Students of Color in Study Abroad
- First-Generation College Students and Study Abroad
- Removing Barriers for Students With Disabilities in Education Abroad
- Strategies for Mobilizing Students in the Sciences
- Undocumented Students and Access to Education Abroad
- Expanding the Reach of Education Abroad
While there has been significant discussion and action to promote broader inclusion in education abroad, this is the first volume focusing on research and practice to achieve these ends. It is intended as a critical resource for practitioners and scholars alike.

"Access has been the primary focus of education abroad professionals' diversity concerns for decades. This volume provides a compelling argument for shifting our attention to inclusion and success as essential methods for increasing the quality and value of education abroad for all students. By presenting research, as a foundation for model practices, this volume offers new directions for scholarship while presenting practitioners with recommendations and practical tools for advancing inclusive excellence." —David Wick, Assistant Professor, International Education Management , Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey
"As the demographics of student populations continue to evolve a greater understanding of pathways towards excellence are essential. High impact practices like study abroad are quickly becoming the rule rather than the exception. This book provides an excellent foundation for professionals dedicated to diversity and inclusion in international education. The writers examine a complete spectrum of identities and their intersections. They provide insight into a series of topics rarely discussed in the academe." —Aaron Bruce, PhD, Chief Diversity Officer, San Diego State University
