A House Where All Belong: Redesigning Education Abroad for Inclusive Excellence

edited by: Nick J. Gozik & Heather Barclay Hamir

About this Volume:

This book brings together a diverse group of scholars and practitioners to build bridges between the existing literatures on advising approaches, inclusive pedagogies, and inclusive excellence to situate education abroad within the broader context of inclusive excellence within higher education to answer the question:

How can we integrate inclusive practices to expand the outcomes and benefits of education abroad for all students, with the goal of achieving inclusive excellence?

By connecting this scholarship with promising practices in the field and the guidance found in the Standards of Good Practice,  practitioners in education abroad and beyond will find this collection of readings both actionable and inspiring for their work to deepen the impact of education abroad by means of the principles of inclusive excellence.

Praise for A House Where All Belong:

“This book is the most comprehensive text which applies EDI principles to not just the structures, processes, systems, and ways of thinking within Education Abroad but the practical application of these principles to all aspects of our work within higher education. I highly recommend this text to my colleagues within student affairs and other divisions and departments within the administrative campus community seeking to live into Inclusive Excellence.  Best addition to my library of higher education texts in years!”
– Levester Johnson, Ed.D., Vice President for Student Affairs, Illinois State University

“Exclusion is universal, and our students are not immune to the harm it causes, regardless of where they study. A House Where All Belong is a refreshing and holistic resource for the different constituencies of education abroad professionals.  I especially appreciate the chapters centered towards supporting on-site staff, as well as the perspectives of the many BIPOC-identifying colleagues in the field who contributed to this project. I am confident it will spur reflection, conversation, and innovation in the area of interculturality and belonging.”
Ariadne M. Ferro Bajuelo, Ph.D., Executive director, APUNE (Association of North American University Programs in Spain)

“This anthology thoughtfully addresses the key issues at the intersection of international education and diversity, equity, and inclusion today. It is a call to action to increase representation of underrepresented groups, ensure equitable treatment of marginalized peoples, and advance the cause of global justice and equality throughout every step of the education abroad process.”
– Brittani Smit, Ph.D., Associate Vice President of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Antiracism, IES Abroad
