Making transformative learning more accessible: identifying systemic barriers for Social Sciences students to study and work abroad.

The University of Victoria’s Faculty of Social Sciences aims for transformative learning though strong academic programs, Indigenous reconciliation, and global citizenship. To make transformative learning more accessible, the project seek to identify and address systemic barriers for students with disabilities, Indigenous students, and low-income students to study and work abroad. This multi-stage and multi-partner approach includes an audit of policies and processes that may disadvantage target groups, interviews and focus groups to identify barriers to participation, a literature review, identification of data and data gaps, and the development of a community of practice to provide enhanced student support.
