Blanchard, Joy; Broido, Ellen M.; Stygles, Katherine N.; Rojas, Frank A.
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v53 n2 p190-204 2016
In this article, the authors describe a student affairs graduate student internship exchange program between Florida International University, a large, urban, Hispanic-serving institution, and Bowling Green State University, a rural, residential, midwestern university, and present findings from a survey of past participants. Results indicate significant growth in functional area knowledge and growth in diversity-related outcomes. The authors propose strategies for enhancing multicultural competencies within the exchange program and curriculum and describe ways others might incorporate similar experiences.
