Inclusive Re-entry Programming for Intercultural and Employability Skills Development

This project aimed to enhance re-entry programming. To inform the project, a literature review, interviews and a survey were conducted. Students reportedly gained a deeper connection to their cultural identity, faced challenges unique to their identity, and sought inclusive spaces to share their experiences. Regarding employability, students reported that their international experience affirmed their career identity and enhanced their intercultural skills but faced difficulty communicating the application of these skills. To address these challenges, an online re-entry program was designed in a reflective, inclusive, and interactive manner focusing on three modules: self-awareness, intercultural competence, and employability.
