Special Section Introduction: HBCUs Reimagine Study Abroad - Inclusive and Transformative
The purpose of this special section can be summarized in three aims. One is to foreground the emergent and effective pedagogical practices from HBCUs by presenting the work of leading scholar-practitioners who are reimagining what it means to study abroad, both beyond borders and after the global pandemic experience. The second aim is to exemplify the collaborative and cross-institutional efforts of HBCUs. The third and final aim is to draw on the many lessons and highlight the strategies study abroad programs at HBCUs developed as they reimagined justice-oriented education in the context of their global education programming and priorities. By unmasking the important and critical contributions of HBCUs, we hope to learn from the transformation underway in study abroad offices across the country, while also recognizing the historical context of study abroad at HBCUs and foregrounding the effects of the pandemic on contemporary and future study abroad programs and models at these important institutions.
