Com Disc: Inclusive Support for Students of Asian Descent

Inclusive support for students of Asian decent in global education
Join us for this Community Discussion, hosted by the Education Abroad: Support & Advising Task Force.
Inclusive Support for Students of Asian Descent in Global Education
Thursday, June 30, 2022 at 3:00 PM EST

Oftentimes, “Asian” is seen as a monolith among students, staff, and faculty alike, when there are many identities and ethnicities under this umbrella. During this session, members of the Diversity Abroad Student Support and Advising Task Force will zoom in on some common misconceptions people have about students of Asian descent, and how outward perceptions impact a student’s global learning experience. Through a professional staff survey, student stories, and additional research, we will examine the overt and underlying challenges that students from Asian descent experience and explore ways to better support them before and during their global learning journey.
