About this Event
Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) programs provide opportunities for students to engage in critical self-reflection and build community. However, in practice, these programs rarely provide space for international students to engage fully as participants. Presenters will share their experiences as student affairs practitioners in both DEI and international education, highlighting lessons learned through international student support and programming. This session offers attendees an opportunity to understand how to expand programs and learning- and co-curricular experiences to be more inclusive of international student experiences.
Participants will learn about the philosophical and pedagogical ways that social justice initiatives and internationally-informed DEI work are interconnected.
Participants will learn about specific strategies that can be used to meaningfully engage international students in DEI programming.
Participants will develop practical programming skills through engaging in group reflection and discussion.
