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.
