Increasing EDI in Douglas College Study Abroad

This project examined how Douglas College can increase equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in study abroad (SA) program offerings and services for under-represented populations. A gap analysis was conducted of current supports and services, practices and policies, and program design. Participants included students, staff, faculty members and a DC Elder. Recommendations included; utilising more inclusive design during program and promotion development; streamlining current practices to reduce or eliminate unnecessary steps in the application process, scholarships, accessibility advising and financial aid; reviewing available internal scholarship criteria; and increasing the overall profile of study abroad within Douglas College.
