Disability Dialogue and Strategies at CIEE's Annual Conference

11/06/2019 - 11/08/2019

The Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE) has recognized the growing number of students studying abroad each year, yet the number of underrepresented groups, including students with disabilities, continue to stay low. 

This year CIEE held their annual conference to discuss how international educators can strategize together to dramatically increase diversity in study abroad including racial, ethnic, gender, religious, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, disability, and age, so that it accurately reflects the diversity in today’s student population.
