The Half Yet to Be Told: Study Abroad and HBCUs

edited by: Andre P. Stevenson & Keshia N. Abraham

About this Volume:

Many Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) are engaged in education abroad and have been for decades. Like other institutions, study abroad at HBCUs offers a variety of options for traveling to different areas of the world for students, while seeking to advance toward obtaining a degree. However, much of the literature regarding study abroad at HBCUs focuses on barriers that prevent students from participating at comparable levels as other institutions.

How can we celebrate the work of education abroad practitioners at HBCUs?

What can other institutions learn from the experience of HBCUs engaged in study abroad?

This edited book will highlight the extraordinary and innovative contributions of HBCUs to education abroad as a whole, with special emphasis on historical perspectives of global education, opportunities for global engagement, stories from faculty, staff, and alumni and how study abroad fosters a sense of belonging in the world.
