Inclusive International Summer Field Schools

This project will offer five- to 10-week, and two- to four-week faculty-led, summer academic international summer field schools (IFSs) across a variety of disciplines and countries. The IFSs will be designed and promoted to encourage and facilitate the participation of underrepresented students including Indigenous students, students with disabilities and those in financial need. One IFS per year will be specifically dedicated to Indigenous knowledge, Peoples and communities. All IFSs will be promoted and supported in ways that ensure the inclusion, success and belonging of underrepresented students. Selected IFSs will include alumni, Elders and community members to create avenues for social/employment connections and cross-generational learning.
