While education abroad is increasingly emphasized as a critical factor in preparing undergraduates for a globally interconnected world, many segments of the student population are underrepresented in the pool of students partaking in international education. Students with disabilities, first-generation college students, and science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) majors are just a few of the groups that encounter barriers to education abroad. In Promoting Inclusion in Education Abroad: A Handbook of Research and Practice, co editors Nick J. Gozik of Boston College and Heather Barclay Hamir of Butler University gather leading thinkers and practitioners to offer research and case studies that illuminate the personal and institutional issues which may inhibit education abroad participation and present practices to increase the diversity of students engaged in international education. Gozik is director of Boston College’s Office of International Programs and McGillycuddy-Logue Center for Undergraduate Global Studies.
