INCLUSION, EQUALITY AND DIVERSITY IN HIGHER EDUCATION
Looking at Inclusion through a Global Lens
Diversity, access and inclusion are hallmarks of a globally-relevant higher education experience. While efforts to help low-income domestic or resident students find appropriate college matches are appropriately lauded, related initiatives to support low-income international students are not always as well-recognized nor understood. This interactive panel brings together enrollment & admissions leaders to explore ways to expand access and opportunities for low-income international students within the world-class universities. Panelists will discuss strategies, approaches & best practices for creating opportunities for low-income international students. Financial aid strategies and trends will be covered, as well practical methods for reaching & supporting refugee students.
Understand recent trends, methodologies and best practices in the strategic allocation of financial aid for international students. Develop new models & methodologies for allocating purposeful financial aid to attract & support international undergraduates. Enable admissions professionals to understand, compare & evaluate different financial aid models for international students; participants will weigh the most effective methodologies to determine financial need for prospective international students at their respective institutions. Assist enrollment leaders in developing approaches for identifying, attracting & supporting high-achieving, low-income (HALI) international students; develop ways to look at access & inclusion initiative through a global lens.
