Although Black students made up 15.7% of all enrollments in higher education in the fall of 2021 (U.S. Census Bureau, 2022), they constituted only 4.1% of all Americans studying abroad in the 2020-2021 academic year (International Institute of Education, 2022). Recent research has begun to turn toward a more qualitative investigation of the study…

Machin, Elizabeth; Tragant, Elsa – Frontiers: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Study Abroad, 2022
The present study seeks to offer insights into how former study abroad students, temporally beyond the period of initial re-entry into their home environments, perceive Spanish as a foreign language in their lives now. This post-sojourn period is explored within the framework of the L2 Motivational Self System (Dörnyei, 2009) and the expanded…

Simopoulou, Zoi; Willis, Alette; Georgiadou, Lorena – Frontiers: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Study Abroad, 2022
Opportunities for working, volunteering, and studying abroad have become popular in higher education as vehicles for the development of cultural awareness and global citizenship.

Deters, Jessica; Holloman, Teirra K.; Grote, Dustin; Taylor, Ashley R.; Knight, David – Frontiers: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Study Abroad, 2022
In study abroad programs, overall student participation and the representation of minoritized students continue to rise, but barriers to participation for minoritized students persist, especially in engineering. As we strive to broaden participation in engineering study abroad programs, we must critically examine the experiences of minoritized…

Baiutti, Mattia – Frontiers: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Study Abroad, 2021

Johnstone, Christopher; Smith, Tiffany Lachelle; Malmgren, Jodi – Frontiers: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Study Abroad, 2020
Study abroad is a high impact practice, touted as a tool for developing global and intercultural awareness. In 2017/18, of the nearly 350,000 U.S. students who studied abroad, sixty-five percent participated in "short-term" programs (IIE, 2018). Short-term programs are often administered as group opportunities, in which students…

Woolf, Michael – Frontiers: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Study Abroad, 2020
Dominant national myths create versions of reality that we need to deconstruct if we are to take students beyond stereotype. Using the USA as an example, histories that do not align with critical national narratives become silenced or muted. Preoccupation with Black and White dichotomies is just such a narrative that has hidden the significance of…

Through longitudinal data and with CCW as a conceptual framework, three key themes…

Elliott, Timothy Lynn; Romito, Lorien – Frontiers: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Study Abroad, 2018
Students studying at US institutions of higher education come from a broad range of religious and non-religious traditions.
