USF Education Abroad Inclusion Initiative
The USF Education Abroad Inclusion Initiative is a system-wide endeavor to increase participation in credit bearing international experiences by students who are traditionally under-represented in study abroad programs. The goals of the Inclusion Initiative are (1) to increase participation in study abroad by non-White students, (2) to increase participation in study abroad by Pell-Grant eligible students, and (3) to create Complementary Embedded Experiences (CEEs) for required courses representing diverse majors and disciplines – with the goal of increasing study abroad participation by transfer students, working students, and those whose majors are rigidly scripted. USF Education Abroad Inclusion Initiative is designed to enfranchise the greatest number of students on credit bearing study abroad programs.
