As part of the Institute of International Education's Generation Study Abroad Summit, we had great discussion and best practices during our session, "Commitments that Work: Removing Barriers for Students with Disabilities" on Thursday, October 1, 2015.
Generation Study Abroad aims to make sweeping change in the current culture by extending the conversation beyond the typical study abroad population. A number of Commitment Partners have developed strategies to reach students with disabilities and support them in pursuing a study abroad experience. This session explored successful programming ideas and tools that have helped increase study abroad participation among students with disabilities. You can download the PowerPoint in PDF or Word format.
