Supporting students who are Indigenous, disabled, and low income in global engagement experiences: Inclusion by diversifying approaches, design, and destinations.

This project will increase the participation of target student groups in international education by designing diverse targeted programs along with promotions, procedures and wraparound supports. The project goes beyond an equity approach and ensures students feel a sense of belonging by their participation in the research and design. To provide more non-traditional destination options, Laurier University will deepen existing relationships (e.g. Australia to serve Indigenous students, and Ghana to broaden faculty and type of engagement) and broaden destination options by leveraging faculty relations (e.g. University of Auckland). Virtual programming, such as COIL, will provide accessible and introductory international experiences.
