Perkins, Christel – Frontiers: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Study Abroad, 2020
Higher education literature has often documented the barriers to participation in study abroad for students of color. However, the majority of study abroad research to date employs a deficit frame, focusing on why students of color do not participate, rather than on what enables students of color to rise above barriers. Using an anti-deficit…

Short-term programs are often administered as group opportunities, in which students…
