IFSA Dialogue on Inclusive Excellence:
Best Practices from Higher Education in a Study Abroad Context

March 27, 2019
University of Colorado-Denver

The Institute for Study Abroad (IFSA) is pleased to invite you and a guest to participate in a dialogue at CU Denver on March 27, 2019. This event is co-hosted by the CU Denver Office of Global Education, and facilitated by Dr. Heather Barclay Hamir, IFSA President and CEO, and Margaret McCullers, IFSA Associate Director of Academic and Special Projects. The Dialogue explores student engagement, high impact practices, and inclusive excellence in study abroad.

As undergraduate enrollment has grown in the last half century, degree completion rates have not risen proportionally, and time toward completion has increased. Dr. Barclay Hamir will discuss her dissertation research on study abroad participation, degree completion and time to degree, as well as practices to facilitate increased student engagement. She will discuss emergent research on study abroad as a High-Impact Educational Practice (George D. Kuh, 2008), its potential compensatory effects for underrepresented students, and how we might maximize the efficacy of study abroad on student success.

Participants will engage in lively discussion with colleagues to enhance our collective knowledge on fostering student success through education abroad. Given the relevance of this topic to broader campus conversations, we hope you will bring a key partner from another area of your campus.  

Please join us at CU Denver on March 27, 2019 from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Please register by March 20, 2019. Beverages and lunch will be provided. Location, parking details and Dialogue schedule will follow by email.
