Equity & Strategic Professional Development

” The paradox of education is precisely this—that as one begins to become conscious, one begins to examine the society in which he is being educated…” James Baldwin, 1963

Cultural Links is committed to moving the needle on equity in study abroad for underserved student populations. Options to study abroad in African countries are rare. In comparison to European destinations (more than 70%), study abroad in African countries account for only 3.9% of all international program offerings through U.S. public and private higher education institutions (IIE, 2018).

Workshops for Educators and Students

Being reflective is the key to DATAAS.
Students need space, time, and energy to understand why and how transformation occurs.
This workshop presents data on student transformation and activism with a focus on strategies for cultivating deepened critical self-reflection.

In service to uplifting AA student voice, this workshop is led by Cultural Links Global Education Student Ambassadors who present a 1-hour interactive session highlighting heritage-based study abroad for self-transformation including spiritual, personal, and academic growth. Workshop participants will better understand how heritage-based study abroad…

Expands a sense of belonging in a global community.
Generates happy spirits, fosters 21st-century intercultural competency skills that employers seek.
Develops resiliency in leadership.
Helps to dismantle White privilege in study abroad.

The use of African ontology in education centers learning around what is most important to AA students beyond the confines of Western paradigms- from curriculum design to instructional methodology and can apply to any student group. These student-centered workshops channel what’s important through the lens of the student audience

What do immigrant students wish to gain from their educational experiences? How do disabled or unsheltered students perceive their leadership and activism as being cultivated on college campuses?
