Fall 2021 Call for Article Submissions

Diversity Abroad welcomes submissions for the Fall 2021 edition of The Global Impact Exchange: A Quarterly Publication of Diversity Abroad. Article submissions can take various forms, including: scholarly articles, opinion pieces, book reviews, student stories, personal narratives, research findings, etc. We encourage contributors who have experience working with diverse and underrepresented groups in global education including racial and ethnic minorities, LGBTQI+, persons with disabilities, religious diversity, high financial need, community college students, and first generation college students. Selected articles will be shared widely through Diversity Abroad communication platforms.



As we begin to plan for global education opportunities, how are we framing health, safety, and well-being in the changing world. The Center of Disease Control (CDC) has recently announced “racism as a serious threat to the public’s health.” Considering the negative impact that racism and discrimination has on the mental health of students, staff, and faculty, what support mechanisms are being built or enhanced to ensure all constituents are supported when impacted by instances of discrimination and/or racism? How are we centering equity and inclusion in health, safety, and wellbeing discussions, strategies, and programming? How are campus leadership, faculty, staff, students/families, and providers integrating new health, safety, and wellbeing protocols into global education programming? After over a year of working from home, how will wellbeing be factored into staff and faculty success as global education programs begin to pick back up? What strategies would be helpful for offices who continue operating under a hybrid model to ensure effective student support? What support is in place for international students who are arriving on campus? For international students who will be participating remotely, how will their wellbeing be centered in their global education experience? How are we tailoring the message specifically for international students around health, wellness, and wellbeing to ensure they are supported and can be successful?
